Misc. Comments

Genealogy sites and this page turn up a bit about the dedicatee and librettist, suggesting that that the former was the latter's daughter, that the librettist was born in England and died in Philadelphia in 1815 and 1867 respectively- assuming that the coincidences of names are not just that.)
