Garland of Truth (16  August  1801) AnonymousThe garland of truth, or, Integrity proved. A comedy in five acts. 1801
According to Nicoll, the play was both performed and published in 1801. The play was submitted to the Lord Chamberlain, and the manuscript is in the Henry E. Huntington Library Archive.
An earlier publication (8 p.) is too brief to be the entire play, but suggests there was an earlier version of the play:
The garland of truth, beautified with three new songs I. Truth laid open; or, every man's duty discover'd… II. A dialogue between a husband-man and a serving man. III. The amerous [sic] lovers. 1750 Licensed according to order.
