Excerpt from Memoirs of John Dryden, Vol. 1 of 2

I do not pretend to enter into the question of the effect of the drama upon morals. If this shall be found prejudicial, two theatres are too many. But, 'in the present woful' decline of theatrical exhibition, we may be permitted to remember, that the gardener who wishes to have a rare diversity of a common ?ower, sows whole beds with the species; and that the monopoly granted to two huge theatres must necessarily diminish, in a com plicated ratio, both the number of play writers, and the chance of any thing very excellent being brought forward.
