Larry's offer and laying out of procedure seems to me to be an excellent 
way to bring some sort of order to this discussion.

Thanks Larry!

I have made known to Larry Weiss my willingness to participate in any 
fair process to resolve this issue.

In the meantime, listserv readers may like to consider three unexpected 
results of my inquiry, namely that whoever wrote 1 Richard II also wrote 
Edward III, the Shakespeare scenes in The Two Noble Kinsmen and the 
fragment from Sir Thomas More attributed to Shakespeare. The data 
supporting these claims have been added to my web site. 
http://home.hawaii.rr.com/drmichaelegan/index.html

The implications are considerable, because not even Macd. P. Jackson 
suggests that Sam Rowley (or another Jacobean author, if he prefers this 
formula) stole from Shakespeare plays or portions of Shakespeare plays 
not attributed to the master until the late 20th Century. So either 
Shakespeare indeed wrote what has now been identified as his by the 
style-critics, and also 1 Richard II, or we have discovered a hitherto 
unsuspected Elizabethan dramatist, and a major one at that.

I hope Ward Elliott is as good as his word. I look forward to debating him.
