ADVERTISEMENT.

The Author of the following Drama is universally allowed to be the Garrick of the German Stage, and the Dramatic Rival of KOTZEBUE in the Closet.--The great Object of MR. IFFLAND, in all his Dramatic Productions, is to render the Theatre what it was in the palmy Days of Terence--a School of Morality, by exhibiting Virtue in all her native Charms, and Vice in all her Deformity; or, in the Language of Pope,

6. To wake the Soul by gentle Strokes of Art,
To raise the Genius, and to mend the Heart;
66 In conscious Innocence to make Men bold,
“ Live o'er each Scene, and be what you behold!"
