Subject: Re: Shakespeare and the Colonies
A man who never went to Virginia got documents buried in a building in a
community that wasn't built until around 50 years or so after his death,
having apparently trusted said documents to the hands of people who
would have published them in an ordinary world (remember, it won't be
until 75 or so years after his death that Shakespeare would be regarded
as greater than Jonson, Marlowe, or even Lyly, so you can't use the
claims of a Stratfordian cabal dominating.)
This is why I don't care for Baconians.
