[एसा अनचालुदत्तस्स बहुआ &c. We cull the follow. ing from Wilson's note appended to this speech. The ancient commentary, the MS. of which consulted was dated above two centuries ago, eites a verse stating that from this speech to that of Sarvilaka "you are fortunate in your friends" the whole is an interpolation, the work of Ntlakantha who considered that the author had not brought his characters together at the close with' sufficient reason and therefore devised the next scene. The cause assigned for the original defect seems rather an unaccountable one. "Through fear of sunrise; but the phrase is a proverbial One, implying "finishing in a hurry." The passage is "यत् सूर्योदय. भयतः फयिनोचितपात्रमेलनं न कृतं सुंदरयुक्तिभिररचयदाचन्दनोक्तिनीलकण्ठस्य ततू." But Sylvain Levi (rightly I think) thus understands the phrase- सयोदय for fear of sunrise i. e. the sun will rise high if the Act be lengthened. Nilakantha had no such practical view in mind and introduced the scene.
