You can do the same thing at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in
Chicago.  In fact, I think they might have a bigger catalogue than the
LA and NY museums.

<Bassanio learns that he will have to be <circumsized when he reads the
<scroll in the leaden casket:

<<If you be well pleased with this
<<And hold your fortune for your briss
<<Turn you where your lady is
<<And claim her with a loving kiss

Although I have dutifully read James Shapiro on circumcision in Merchant
of Venice (113-130), I am missing this point.
