Impromptu By Rb Sheridan

IN King William's time a Mr. Tredenham was taken before the Earl of
Nottingham on suspicion of having treasonable papers in his possession.
I am only a poet, said the captive, and those papers are my
roughly-sketched play. The Earl examined the papers, however, and then
returned them, saying, I have heard your statement and read your play,
and as I can find no trace of a plot in either, you may go free.
