EXPLANATORY NOTES
1. (Title-page) Somnia… portentaque: Horace, Epistles, n. ii. 208–9. Horace (Quintus Horatius Maccus) 65–8 BG was a Latin poet, much admired in the eighteenth century, and extremely influential in the English satirical tradition.
3. (Preface) In famous row called Paternoster. Paternoster Row is located just north of St Paul's churchyard, London. It is a long, narrow street, which, in the second half of the eighteenth century, was filled with booksellers’ shops.

When he complains to the devil of his guilt, the devil lets him know that the princess is pregnant, and suggests murdering her. This he does, but her body is found. When the Santon is on the gallows, the devil appears, promising rescue if Barsisa will adore him. However, when he does this, the devil spits
