Subject:        Quote Sources

Dear List,

I'm looking for the sources to two quotes that Lawrence Durrell used in
an unpublished essay a friend is editing--both relating to Shakespeare,
and both included in quotes in his essay, so that we think there is an
Elizabethan source Durrell is quoting.  Do either of these sound
familiar?

--"common miming and jigging"  (referring to certain clowning scenes
audiences would find familiar)

--Shakespeare's "stock of well-penned plays" (did some contemporary
playwright allude to Shakespeare's work using this phrase?)

If anyone has any ideas, I'd be grateful.
