Dear All,

I suspect, to the contrary, that of course the 'rich jewel' here is a
sneaking reference to the play's authorship by Nashe via his allusion to
the 'richly jeweled coffer of darius', which both Shakespeare and Nashe
are known to have stolen from North or Puttenham.  These pesky
collaborative authors always have to leave their little clues for us
sleuths to discover eh?

Yours,
Marcus 'Nashe ain't dead he's just living in Swindon' Dahl

All very good, but what is Juliet's rating in millihelens?

Uh huh. She's glowing. Kind of a nice transition point between heavenly
body and that other angel of value.
