A private enquirer asks: 'Would you kindly scanmail the page containing 
the "handwritten pencil note" onto SHAKSPER?' Here it is at 300dpi, 
resized 75%, and cropped:

I'm most inclined now towards thinking that it was simply a quaint 
dedication from Savage to someone to whom we should all be grateful, and 
as such I wondered whether I ought to have posted about it. But Savage 
could've given his thanks privately, and he was surely aware that 
discoveries of old handwritten notes are a substance of Shakespearean 
research. Indeed his book was about one such discovery.  Perhaps he 
meant it to become the focus of another, a century later.

Anyway, the question remains open. I'd also like to learn more about 
Savage; the history books don't say much about him.

I suspect that the William Jaggard to whom Richard Savage gave the 
Pudsey book is the man described in this post from the archives of SHAKSPER:
