- they had become intimate with Mrs. Flaw and Jenny Stumps at Reading—the women follow them to Twickenham where the scene lies—Sir Harry and Trap at Reading had assumed the names of Welworth and Nehemiah Flam--this is a most improbable circumstance, but on it all the fun of the Farce turns — Jenny Stumps leaves a letter in Candy's garden directed to Nehemiah Flam, but meant for Trap—the real Nehemiah Flam answers the letter in person—in the last scene, Mrs. Flaw and Jenny Stumps come to Candy's house-Sir Harry and Trap are obliged to acknowledge their real names —and the piece concludes with the union of Welworth and Emily—this F. was not printed till 1808, when Colman Jun. thought proper to avow himself the author of it-he allows that it is a flimsy piece.
