Look inside the book:
It might be inferred from a passage in the address 'to the Reader,' that 'A Woman is a Weathercock' was written some time before it was printed; and from the dedication of the same play, we learn that Field's 'Amends for Ladies,' if not then also finished, was fully contemplated by the author under that title. ...I send a comedy to you here, as good as I could then make; nor slight my presentation, because it is a play; for I tell thee, reader, if thou be'st ignorant, a play is not so idle a thing as thou art, but a mirror of men's lives and actions; nor, be it perfect or imperfect, true or false, is the vice or virtue of the maker.
