A lot that I don’t have time to go into, but I just want to point out one thing concerning Gerald E. Downs’s comment about the struck MS lines:

 

>whose discipline is ryot., why euen yor [warres] -hurly-

>cannot pceed but by obedienc . . .

 

> Arden3 follows OED to define hurly as “commotion, uproar, 

>turmoil.” Does that proceed by obedience? Not around my 

>house. 

 

Gerald, have you read much Shakespeare? Back up a few words and parse the phrase “whose discipline is ryot”.
