Note

With a note by Drinkwater Meadows pasted to a front flyleaf: 'I imagine the time set down is that whixh was occupied by the acting only, and not including the music of the entre acts [sic] - therefore we may add at least five minutes to each act [words crossed through, illegible] - that is twenty five minutes for each performance - scenic effects being in Garrick's days, little thought of. Thus Hamlet - 2 hours & 39 minutes [+] 25 entre acts [=] 3 hours - 4 minutes
