I mentioned a short time ago that I was at work transcribing _The
Prison-Breaker_ (Anon., 1724).  This is now finished, and anyone who'd be
interested in a copy can contact me backchannel, and I'll email it to them.

Relevant fields of interest might be 18thC cant, stage presentation of Irish
and Welsh speech, the presentation of Jack Sheppard and Jonathan Wild, and
as background to _The Beggar's Opera_.
