Subject:        Q: *Cardenio*

Is *Cardenio* *The Second Mayden's Tragedy*, as Charles Hamilton said?
Does E. Sams agree with Hamilton on this point?

Any comments about Cardenio?  I know everybody BOOs at Hamilton's guess
about the Second Mayden's Tragedy (hereafter SMT), but, you never

Has anyone suggested anything besides SMT (Don't tell me about
<italic>Double Falsehood<italic>)?  If not, we'll have to stick with
Hamilton's theory, crazy as it may sound.

                                           Your honour's all in duty,
                                           Gabriel Z. Wasserman
