Subject:      	Beckett's Shakespeare
  A colleague at City College passed me this query, and I'm offering it out to
you all -- In a Beckett story, a long sentence has:  " . . . his right hand,
innocent of any more mercantile commodity than that 'gentle peace' recommended
by the immortal Shakespeare.""  What is the allusion? -- Nothing came promptly
to mind, and my hardcopy concordance has a full page of "peace" that I can't
skim through.  Thanks for your help.
