Edward Ravenscroft
I think it a greater theft to Rob the dead of their Praise, then the Living of their Money.
Ravenscroft quotes
I have been told by some anciently conversant with the Stage, that it was not Originally his, but brought by a private Author to be Acted and he only gave some Master-touches to one or two of the Principal Parts or Characters; this I am apt to believe, because 'tis the most incorrect and indigested piece in all his Works, It seems rather a heap of Rubbish then a Structure.
This I did to prevent expences, for ... a penny sav'd, is a penny got.
