Excerpt from The Virginians, Vol. 21: A Tale of the Last Century Anybody who has curiosity sufficient, may refer to the published tragedy (in the octavo form, or in the subsequent Splendid quarto edition of my Collected Works, and Poems Original and Translated), and say whether the scene is without merit, whether the verses are not elegant, the language rich and noble? One of the causes of the failure was my actual fidelity to history. I had copied myself at the Museum, and tinted neatly a figure of Sir Walter Raleigh in a frill and heard; and (my dear Theo giving some of her mother's best lace for the ruff) we dressed Hagan accurately after this drawing, and no man could look better. Miss Pritchard as Pocahontas, I dressed too as a red Indian, having seen enough of that costume in my own experience at home. Will it be believed the house tittered when she first appeared? They got used to her, however, but just at the moment when she rushes into the prisoner's arms, and a number of people were actually in tears, a fellow in the pit bawls out, Bedad! Here's the Belle Savage kissing the Saracen's Head; on which an impertin'ent roar of laughter eprang up in the pit, breaking out with fitful explosions during the remainder of the performance. As the wagin Mr. Sheridan's amusing Critic admirably says about the morn ing guns, the play wrights were not content with one of them, but must fire two or three so with this wretched pot-house joke of the Belle Savage (the ignorant people not knowing that Pocahontas herself was the very Belle Sauvage from whom. The tavern took its name!) My friend of the pit repeated it ad nauseam during the performance, and as each new character appeared, saluted him by the name of some tavern - for instance, the English governor (with a long beard) he called the Goat and Boots; his lieutenant (barker) whose face certainly was broad, the Bull and Mouth, and so on And the curtain descended amidst a shrill storm of whistles and hisses, which especially assailed poor Hagan every time he Opened his lips. Sampson saw Master Will in the green boxes, with some pretty acquaintances 'of his, and has no doubt that the treacherous scoundrel was one of the ringleaders in the conspiracy. I would have flung him over into the pit, the faithful fellow said (and Sampson was man enough to execute his threat) but I saw a couple of Mr. Nadab's followers prowling about the lobby, and was obliged to sheer off. And so the eggs we had counted on selling at market were broken, and our poor hopes lay shattered before us!

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
