Subject: 15.2036 Harry Potter [small Latine, and lesse Greeke"?
Comment:        Re: SHK 15.2036 Harry Potter [small Latine, and lesse Greeke"?

Peter Bridgman writes, "No need to wonder - he didn't have one
Shakespeare's English teacher...  Only Latin and Greek grammar and
literature were taught in English schools."

Well, Peter.  That would kind of put Ben Jonson's thoughts on his best
bud in proper perspective, wouldn't it: "And though thou hadst small
Latine, and lesse Greeke"?
