On the 22nd of August Colman wrote a piece for his own theatre, called "Gay 
Deceivers," for which I composed the music. It had many comic incidents, smart
dialogue, and some sweet songs. One called "The Spartan Boy," was truly poetical;
the piece was performed a number of nights, and was much liked. Colman grounded
it upon a French comic opera, entitled "Les Evenemens Imprevus," one of the
pieces I had brought with me from Paris. The author of the French drama, strange
to say, was an Irishman of the name of Hale, an officer in the French military
service ; all his songs were versified for him, as he could not compose French poetry, though he furnished all the subjects.
