ALL'S WE L L,

THAT

ENDS WELL.*

*The ftory of All's Well that ends Well, or, as I fuppofe it to have been fometimes called, Love's Labour Wonne, is originally indeed the property of Boccace, but it came immediately to Shakspeare from Painter's Giletta of Narbon, in the First Vol, of the Palace of Pleafure, 4to. 1566, p. 88.

/

FARMER

Shakspeare is indebted to the novel only for a few leading circumftances in the graver parts of the piece. The comic bufinefs appears to be entirely of his own formation. STEEVENS.

This comedy, I imagine, was written in 1598. See An Attempt to afcertain the Order of Shakspeare's Plays, Vol. I.
