Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


A vet’ran see! whose last act on the stage
Entreats your smiles for sickness and for age;
Their cause I plead; plead it in heart and mind;
A fellow-feeling makes one wondrous kind!
Garrick.—Prologue to “The Wonder,” a play by Mrs. Centlivre. Murphy’s Life of Garrick, Vol. II. Page 131.
