Mr. Stone, in his previous post, suggests that Peachum saw an earlier
version of the play. While this could be the case, I suspect a different
theory. In my theory, Peachum did see TA as it exists today. However,
when he went to draw a picture later, his memory on some parts failed
him (as it seems to have failed Simon Forman, for example, when writing
about "Macbeth"), and he drew a confused picture. For example, he could
have confused the two sons who stay alive throughout the play with the
one killed at the start, and, remembering the role Aaron plays later in
the play, thought that he played an important role in Act I.
