*The Philadelphia Inquirer* for 14 July (Happy Bastille Day!) reports
that the play identified as *Cardenio* is listed in the BL Catalogue
as *The Second Maid's Tragedy*.  As others have said, we'll have to
stay tuned for further reports.

Fellow SHAKSPERIANS:
 
I am trying to finish my first thesis chapter, and I need a quick
answer to the following question:
 
How many actors were in Shakespeare's company, and what was the
average number of actors for an Elizabethan company?
 
A rough number will do - thanks in advance!!
