Yes much better. Thanks.

His discussion of pre-Chamberlain's plays addresses them all, but it's
more than I can re-create here. On Errors, he argues that its
publication would have been enjoined by the June 1594 entry for Warner's
"Menaechmi," citing (among other things) the "Gesta Grayorum" comment on
the two works' equivalence as evidence.

Thanks,
Steve
