Subject:	Bryson Acting Reference

On page 81 of his new Shakespeare biography, Bill Bryson writes that 
Shakespeare "was listed as an actor on documents in 1592, 1598, 1603 and 
1608." Would anyone happen to know what document he is referring to from 
1608? The only one I know of is the deed transferring the Globe from 
John Collett to John Bodley, but it doesn't refer to WS as an actor.
