But so great performance of a comical part was never, I believe, in the world before as Nell do this, both as a mad...
Page 259 - Figarys," which was acted to-day. But, Lord ! to see how they were both painted would make a man mad, and did make me loath them ; and what base company of men comes among them, and how lewdly they talk ! and how poor the men are in clothes, and yet what a show they make on the stage by candle-light, is very observable.
