Dear Terence Martin:
 
I'm sure you will get 100 answers to your query.  Your quotation come from
Marlowe's JEW OF MALTA.  When asked if he did not once commit fornication,
Barrabas replies, something to the effect that:  "Yes,  but that  was in
another country and besides the wench is dead."
 
Best,
Milla Riggio

As many perhaps have already pointed out, the quote appears in Marlowe's
-Jew of Malta-, IV.i.40.  "But that was in another country; and besides, the
wench is dead."

From "another country": I translated an Afrikaans novel entitled _'n Ander
Land_ recently and found, miraculously, that the author had anticipated Marlowe
by almost four hundred years.  Perhaps there is a universal operating here
somewhere?
