Comment:        Re: SHK 16.1265 John Beaumont's Poem "To Mr B. J."

I believe that Chambers thought that the 1615 letter to Jonson was
signed "F.B," and was from Francis Beaumont (not John Beaumont).

An interesting interpretation of this letter can be found in Ogburn:
"The Mysterious William Shakespeare" at page 108.

This book also deals with sartorial expenses by a Lord in several
different settings.

Best,
Elliott H. Stone
