A working draft of a Georgian comedy revolving around mistaken identities, greed and confused love. In it Sir William Cameron, having been banished abroad after fighting in the Battle of Culloden, arrives back in London. His supposed son, however, is not who he seems.

The label of Thomas Cornell, bookseller at 4 Bruton Street, suggests that the text may have been written in the 1780s, but the author and title are yet to be discovered. Comprises:
  1. (item 1) volume 1: Acts 1-3. 139 leaves.
  2. (iem 2 ) volume 2: Acts 3-5. 93 leaves
