That's a little strong, isn't it? After all, isn't the title of the work 
"GREENS, Groats-worth of Wit,...  Written before his death and published 
at his dyeing request"?

Thank you Gerald for a terrific shake-down of the Shake-scene arguments 
on the Greene / Chettle debate.

As I'm sure everyone will be aware, if Chettle is the [main]author of 
GGW and the supposed attack on Shakespeare is actually aimed at Marlowe/ 
Nashe/ Peele, then it also seems to effect the issue (to which it is 
always attached) of the authorship of 1HVI.

I wonder if you have a view on this?

All best,
Marcus
