Subject: Re: Shakespeare's Will (used to be Shakespeare and Sex)
Bill Arnold said: "Shakespeare's last Will and Testament suggests so,
does it not? He wrote, and signed..."
No, he didn't write it. (He did sign, though.) There was a "stock" form
of the will in Shakespeare's time, for example, how it should start. The
passage Bill quoted doesn't tell us much about Shakespeare himself.
