True. However, III, i, is not usually attributed to Fletcher, and the
passage seems Shakespearean enough to my poor judgment.
At any rate, Pope's opinions on "Double Falshood" have to be excluded,
not only because he was prejudiced, but because we know his public
statements on the subject to have been insincere.
