The original text
The play was one of the many plays contained in the collection Théâtre à l'Usage des Jeunes Personnes by Madame de Genlis. The works were educational in intent and written largely for use by the author with her own pupils. The plays were published in four volumes in Paris by Panckoucke between 1779-1780.
