I come upon Jack Heller's July 23 comments on Wilson and Taylor three
weeks late. But am moved to ask if anyone pointed out in this thread
that Ernst Honigmann was the first scholar to argue for the connection,
unless we count Sir Edmund Chambers, who first brought the Shakeshafte
allusion to light. Honigmann's book *Shakespeare The 'Lost Years'*
(Manchester U.P., 1985) is back in print, and I have seen the reprint
alluded to as if it were a new book. It is not. So Honigmann is
deserving of major credit in the chronology of the Shakeshafte affair.
