Strana 278 - I must remember you, that all the rules by which we practise the drama at this day (either such as relate to the justness and symmetry of the plot, or the episodical ornaments, such as descriptions, narrations, and other beauties, which are not essential to the play) were delivered to us from the observations...

Strana 93 - ... accidents, as sneezing, stumbling, seeing apparitions, &c. &c. 27.
