Subject:      Making a Fair Copy of Troilus and Cressida

"The Quarto copy was most probably in Shakespeare's own handwriting" (Peter 
Alexander 279). 

Of course this assertion is now contested -- as are most things Shakespearean. 
But let's assume that Shakespeare did decide to make a fair copy of Tro. in the 
Secretary hand. How long might it take him to do so?
