Crazy though it may sound, I Gabriel Wasserman agree with Hamilton on
the point about the will being in Will's handwriting-even SMT might
<italic>possibly<italic> be in his handwriting, even if Middleton
composed it.

A little while ago, George Wolff, producer of NYC's Public Theater, told
my father that the Public is planning to produce *Cardenio*, as well as
*The Two Noble Kinsmen*.  Knowing my interest in the subject, my father
told me about it.  I am wondering whether they are doing *Double
Falsehood*, *The Second Mayden's Tragedy*, their own candidate, or
whether they have found the original Cardenio.

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

Post Scriptum: Is *Double Falsehood* available in print?
