Re: Request for the original source for a reported remark by John 
Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough 1650-1772.

In the course of my work for the Shakespeare Society of Southern Africa, 
I shall be most obliged if you will kindly assist with the tracing of 
the following quote:-

"John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough (1650-1722), supposedly 
said he knew no English history but what he had learned from Shakespeare 
(or words to that effect). Could someone supply the original source for 
this reported remark? I would be most grateful."

I look forward to hearing from you and thank you sincerely, in anticipation.

Yours sincerely
Hilde Slinger
Shakespeare Society of Southern Africa
