M. Matinsky`s comic opera was first published in 1790 in Moscow without the consent of the author under the name "St. Petersburg Gostiny Dvor". The following year, the author published it in St. Petersburg in a new edition under the title "You'll be Known by the Way you Live"; in the "Preliminary Notice" to this the editorial staff M. Matinsky reported that his comic opera "was played before sim years for ten "; thus, the date of its setting may be timed to the years 1781-1782. In Moscow, it was first performed in theater Maddoksa in 1783 (here usually Petersburg plays were going to next season). The date of the first production in the literature the comic opera of Matinsky - 1779, taken from an absolutely unreliable source, the so-called "Chronicles" I. Nosov. In 1799, the third edition of this comic opera was printed in Moscow under it's first title. The text of all publications differs relatively slightly. The greatest the deviation is that in the second edition of the last act of the play happens again in Gostiny Dvor, and not in Skvalygin's house, as in two other editions. In terms of language, the second edition is much weaker, since Matinsky smoothed out the speech features of the characters of the play.В В
