Subject:      Middleton and Macbeth

[Personal portion of correspondence deleted.]

I hadn't been following the debate about my denial of Gary Taylor's claim 
that about 11 percent of "Macbeth" was contributed by Middleton, until my 
good friend William Proctor Williams forwarded a few postings. 

I would like to reply to SHK 21.0251, if I may, but not in any spirit of 
controversy. I just want to inform your readers that I have put up on the 
website of the London Forum for Authorship Studies two pdf files, one 
containing the full text of my TLS essay, the other a detailed examination 
of Taylor's evidence by myself, Dr Marcus Dahl, and Professor Marina 
Tarlinsjaya. I attach a link herewith, so that you can see for yourself that 
it's all reputable scholarship. I feel that if people want to debate this 
issue, then they should have access to the full texts, and not work by 
hearsay. The site is at
