Does anyone have, or know where to acquire, a true-type font based on the text
of the first folio?  A friend asked me about this, and I told him I had no
idea, but that if it were available someone out yonder would know!

A colleague has asked me for help, about a quotation that occurs in a short
story, "Oedipus", by the Canadian writer Sheila Watson:

'See,' he said.  He had scrawled a few lines on the back of a telephone bill.

   I have often heard her say she gave me suck
   And it should seem by that she dearly loved me
   Since Princes seldom do it.

Puss said, 'When you read the Elizabethans you always get what you want and you
aren't always detected.

My colleague wishes to identify the lines of verse. My Shakespeare concordance
doesn't turn them up, and I don't recognize them, so I would be very glad if
anybody can do so.
