Notes: "EFDS Folder"; I have been unable to find a "1st" version in this Helm database. There is an "East Drayton" text in the EFDSS library which is a St. George play similar to the "Peace Egg" chapbook. It does not tally with the Recruiting Sergeant text collected by Wilkinson. The EFDSS copy may be an incorrectly headed copy of the East Yorkshire play listed under Helm 3:434-443, q.v.
