Subject:        King John's Second Coronation

In King John, there are references to King John's second coronation at
4.2.1, 4.2.35, 4.2.157 (an oblique reference) and 5.1.1-4.  The first 2
references are worded as though the event has already occurred; the last
reference appears to be the event itself.  Is this simply a mistake on
Shakespeare's part, or is there some logic to this sequence of
references?
