Subject:        Research re Salique Law

Some time ago, in connection with an essay on the acting of Canterbury's
demolition of the Salique Law claim in Henry V, a SHAKSPER member
provided me with a website which contained the actual debate over
whether or not to invade France, and upon what grounds. I have been
unable to recover this site, only remember that it was a transcription
-- presumably by scribe or scribes present at the debate. Rather
remarkable document pointing, if I recall correctly, to the contention
within the court over the invasion. Can anyone provide me with that site
so I can review the debate again. Many thanks in advance.

No.  No one has.  And I wonder how Mr. Burton became privy to any such
legal advice, which would have been given in confidence, if it was.  The
only advice I know of, with which I concur, is that the persons in
custody are not prisoners of war and, therefore, not subject to the
Geneva Conventions.  In spite of that, the US government has decided to
treat them as if they were.

On the question of how to play Henry V Act I scene ii I would take
Olivier's advice, "have a bash."
