369. Malone, xiv. 368 (not in Adams); also incomplete version in Ord HP2, reading 'consideration' for 'confirmation'. Lazarus and Baptista Colloretti, or Colloredo, were Siamese twins from Genoa. Martin Parker's ballad about them, 'The Two Inseparable Brothers', is repr. by Hyder Rollins, The Pack of Autolycus (Cambridge, Mass., 1927), 10–14. Rollins also assembles a number of seventeenth-century allusions to them (ibid. 7–9, 237). They appeared at Norwich in Mar. 1638 and Dec. 1639 (Norwich, 227 and 233), and at Aberdeen in 1642 (see Introduction, 81).
