§ 24. Lansdowne.


George Granville, lord Lansdowne, besides a disastrous adaptation of The Merchant of Venice, produced, in 1696, the comedy entitled The She-Gallants, and, in 1698, Heroick Love, a tragedy sufficiently described by its composite title. Both these pieces seem to have been successful. His last effort, an opera entitled The British Enchanters, was produced by Betterton in 1706 and well received. 25    41
