Orlando: Note
Scholar Vincent Carretta thinks that Mrs Weddell may be pseudonymous. Two anonymous works assigned to her are The City Farce: Designed for the Theatre-Royal in Drury-Lane, prefaced with a spirited "Address to the Pit" (second edition 1737), and a satirical prose account of a pleasure trip, A Voyage up the Thames, 1738. Her Inkle and Yarico tragedy is included in volume 5 of Slavery, Abolition and Emancipation: Writings in the British Romantic Period, edited by Jeffrey Cox, 1999. Bibliographic Citation link.
