[22] Crean, “Life and Times,” p. 254 n. 1, points out that on the very day of this benefit (2 Nov.) a second notice of Mrs. Clive’s Case appeared.

[23] See Nicholson’s concluding chapter.  For other effects of the licensing act see Scouten, London Stage, cxlvii, and Ralph, Case of the Present Theatrical Disputes, pp. 22, 43.
