The Pupille of Monsieur Fagan is mentioned by Voltaire, and
other French writers, as the most complete Petite-Piece upon
their stage.--It now appears in an English dress, with such alterations from the original as the difference of language and
manners required.--It has more than answered the expectations
of the author, who takes this opportunity to return thanks to
the public for their kind indulgence, and to the performers
for their great care.
