Comment:        Re: SHK 14.2233 The Fayre Mayde of the Exchange

When I did some work on FME over a dozen years ago, my strong impression
was that there are at least two hands in it. Using the scene numbers of
the Malone Society Reprint, I found [I thought] that scenes 1 and 7 were
by a different author than [most of] the rest of the play, and that that
author was not Heywood. Actually, I think much of the play may be by
William Haughton, but my study of it is incomplete, to say the least.

Which brings me to another question. I hate to be a beggar, but can
anyone suggest to me how an independent scholar [neither attending nor
teaching at a university] can access EEBO or LION? Benefactors please
reply off-list.

Thanks,
Bill Lloyd
