ed, that the entry at Stationers' Hall, “ Jan 9. 1598,” (see Prefaces, p. 257) was Haywarde's History of K. Henry IV. and not our author's play with the same title. Part of the argument therefore founded by Mr. Malone on the latter fuppofition (p. 300) must be considered as erroneous, whilft I alone remain answerable for his mistake, which happily does not affect the date allotted by him to the piece in question.

This line of Muretus is here quoted from an incorrect edi. tion. The false quantity in it, however, was sufficiently obvious; but as such mistakes in prosody are sometimes to be met with among modern writers of Latin verse, (especially the Poetæ Italorum,) I passed over the present imperfection, without pointing it out to the public. Vet perhaps we should read, with an older copy of this author, printed at Paris in his lifetime:
