Comment: 	Re: SHK 16.1393 Wager

Although I have read and even transcribed Woodstock (from Rossiter's 
edition, not the MS), I am an unqualified skeptic and will stay out of 
this discussion.  However, as an observer I find it annoying to see 
continual references to "1 Richard II" as it presumes entirely too much 
at this stage of the wager.  It is as offputting as, say, blithe 
references to "Oxford's Hamlet" or "Bacon's Macbeth" would be.

Cheers,
Al Magary
