March 18: New Way to Pay Old Debts (Vol. 47, pp. 859-870)
Philip Massinger died this day in 1640, so that is why his "A New Way to Pay Old Debts," is today's selection. It's a tale about a cunning uncle cheating his worthless nephew out of his fortune, and how the nephew goes about getting his position and riches back. More dreary 17th century drama from someone I've never heard of.
