Fielding's second play and third book, a comedy which was turned down by Drury Lane and placed with a new East End theater, where it ran for nine performances. The Prologue is by Fielding's friend - and companion of Benjamin Franklin - the American James Ralph, who at the time was introducing the young Fielding to the ways of Grub Street. See Cross, vol. 1, chapter 3.
