Subject: 16.1200 Help with the Sonnets
Comment:        Re: SHK 16.1200 Help with the Sonnets

Richard Kennedy writes that "Henry might have preferred that friends and
family say his name as Rosely, but that's something we can't know, can
we?"  I believe that my article in the April issue of English Studies
shows that that's something we can know, on the basis of spellings by
persons who were closely associated with the earl of Southampton, both
in Titchfield and in London. The article is long, and no doubt boring;
it cites many different spellings, and reconciles most of them. Mr.
Kennedy, who rests his conclusion on the basis of one spelling only (by
a man who wrote memorial poems for many people, some of whom it's
unlikely that he knew personally), is under no obligation to read the
article, but until he does, his dismissal of my conclusions without
knowing what they are or on what they're based, ought itself to be
dismissed, by anyone interested in the subject..

If like Henry James I become a British subject in my last year, I intend
to change my name to Sinjin Chumley Risley, which as everyone knows is
pronounced "St. John Cholmondeley Wriothesley."

Cheers,
