Subject:        I' th' mire

Mr Cohen states (14.1878) "[...]She [Carol Barton] also observed that
Graham Hall's comments on historians were to her completely
incomprehensible [...]" in this he is erroneous and confused.  Small -
the word being out of its element in the current circumstances perhaps I
should say "little" - wonder she writes as she does (14.1864). Kathy
Dent (14.1865) made the comment - I responded at (14.1877) - and her
error was perpetuated by Daphne Pearson (also at 14.1877). Phew!

Are you following the plot so far? (as a member of the audience at a
recent performance of  Pericles asked of her neighbour).

We go wrong, we go wrong.

Best,
Graham Hall

Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1875

Larry Weiss notes in passing:

>"Conscience avaunt, Richard's himself again" is a Colley Cibber
>addition [to Richard III]. A damn good one I think.

The other Cibber goody is "Off with his head.  So much for Buckingham."

I wonder how often producers of R3 use these outside contributions.
