Subject: RE: SHAKSPER: Douche and Fat Dick
Someone who clearly was a ‘douche’ was the woman living in Bedlam, to whom ‘Fat Dick’ sought to procure visitors. You can read about it at The Dutch Courtesan website set up by Michael Cordner and Ollie Jones, under the ‘Research Essays’ tab. Or try the following link. Oh, and there’s Burbage’s robbery too, not mentioned in his ODNB entry (Nungezer, p. 69. Not much got past him.).
