This modernised text is based on that produced by Elaine Hobby in 2020 for Rebecca Paterson and the Queen’s Company, New York, working from her forthcoming edition for Volume III of The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Aphra Behn. In modernising it, Elaine largely updated spelling and punctuation, but also occasionally substituted modern words for 1679 ones. As long as this origin is acknowledged, anyone is welcome to use this script for any purpose, but a 1679 copy must be checked if accuracy is essential
