In response to Bob's response:

So by your standards then Bob we can take all those s's and f's from 
sonnet number one, eg line 6....flame with selfe substantiall fewell, 
and make ONLY 'selse substantiall sewell'? Coz those f's look like s's 
to me. And then audaciously add the letter of choice, to make a word 
that shows a preferred meaning.

Let's try a little less guessing and slippery conjecture in favour of a 
little more legwork in Jacobethan Printing practices. And I think it 
very telling that you speak on behalf of Shakespeare, who is after all 
'still telling what is told'.

Perhaps the idea of counting has something to do with the spending 
happening in line 12.

Look what is best that best I wish in thee,
William Sutton
