Mr. Stone is an admitted Oxfordian, and it is one of the Oxfordian
dogmata that since we have no record of William Shakespeare traveling to
Italy, and since we know that Oxenforde did, etc., etc.,....
>I have been asked, why I do not reply to Mr. Kennedy's continuous

If _I_ were called an Oxfordian in public, I would very much regard it
as a personal attack, but since Mr. Stone _is_ an admitted Oxfordian, I
do not see why he is offended that I have identified him as such,
unless, perhaps, he knows that his propaganda is out of order here.
