THE EASIEST WAY
[Illustration: EUGENE WALTER]
(Born, Cleveland, Ohio, November 27, 1874)
When questioned once regarding "The Easiest Way," Mr. Eugene Walter
said, "Incidentally, I do not think much of it. To my mind a good play
must have a tremendous uplift in thought and purpose. 'The Easiest
Way' has none of this. There is not a character in the play really
worth while, with the exception of the old agent. The rest, at best,
are not a particular adornment to society, and the strength of the
play lies in its true portrayal of ...

There are pencilled notations probably by Ms. Hurston herself. These pencilled edits have been transcribed as [Note: (text)] Any other questionable transcription is similarly noted. Nothing in the dialect has been changed. Occasional obvious typos in the stage directions have been corrected.

By JOHN LEACOCK
Among the elusive figures of early American Drama stands John Leacock,
author of "The Fall of British Tyranny," published in 1776, in
Philadelphia. Even more elusive is the identification, inasmuch as his
name has been spelled variously Leacock, Lacock, and Laycock. To add to
the confusion, Watson's "Annals of Philadelphia," on the reminiscent
word of an old resident of that town, declares that Joseph Leacock
penned "The Medley." "He wrote also a play, with good humour," says

THE INCA OF PERUSALEM: AN ALMOST HISTORICAL COMEDIETTA
By George Bernard Shaw
I must remind the reader that this playlet was written when its
principal character, far from being a fallen foe and virtually a
prisoner in our victorious hands, was still the Caesar whose legions
we were resisting with our hearts in our mouths. Many were so horribly
afraid of him that they could not forgive me for not being afraid of
him: I seemed to be trifling heartlessly with a deadly peril. I knew
better; and I have represented Caesar as knowing better himself. But
Nota de la present transcripció:
Aquesta traducció de Les Alegres Comares es va editar el 1909,
molt abans, per tant, de l'aparició del Diccionari i Normes de
Gramàtica de Pompeu Fabra, entre 1917 i 1918. Aixó fa que Josep
Carner faci servir unes normes gramaticals i ortogràfiques que
eren les acceptades en aquell moment, i aixís mateix han sigut
respectades en aquesta transcripció.
