Subject: 15 or 16 Years in Winter's Tale?
Comment:        SHK 14.0996 15 or 16 Years in Winter's Tale?

"Please help me resolve this apparent (?) inconsistency in "WT."  Time
has stated that sixteen years have passed, but in the very next scene
(4.2) Camillo says that it's been fifteen years since he's seen
Sicilia.  Any idea what's going on?  Is this just one of those
inconsistencies, or am I missing something?"
