Comment: 	RE: SHK 16.2027 Lions and Tigers and Wagers...oh my...

One last comment before this sinks beneath the waves.

I wrote: "I'm not sure just what these early London years are. What firm 
dates do we have for them?"

William L Davis responded: "I'm not sure we do have firm dates, at least 
as far as Shakespeare's arrival in London is concerned."

Just so. I think it very unwise to try to make firm judgments without 
firm facts to base them on. If you are merely speculating ("What if . . 
  ."), you should identify the process as such.

Even so, some of the infirm facts that provide the groundwork for your 
speculations would be helpful. According to your sources, when do we 
know absolutely that WS was in London, when probably there, and when 
possibly there?

Cheers,
don
