Jealouſy

From Hercules. A Musical Drama. As performed at Oxford. Set by Mr. Handel. "At the Theatre Thursday July 5th 1774":


Something about jealousy as jealouſy with the long s brings to mind (tonight) poufy things--Reddi wip on red JELL-O, festoons, ottomans--and soft-shoe comedy in the spirit of "The Way You Look Tonight."

Of course jealoufy would be even poufier.
