Subject:        Plague Query

Dear all,

Corbin and Sedge, the editors of Ram Alley, make the claim that there
was a proclamation of 1608 which stated that London theatres would be
closed if 40 or more plague deaths occurred in the city within a week.
They don't state where they got this figure from, and I have been
completely unable to find corroborative evidence. Does anyone know?

Best,
Will Sharpe
