Dear SHAKSPEReans:

In response to Stephanie Hughes' and Gabriel Egan's observations (a.) that part
of the claimed "overwhelming evidence" for Shakespeare's authorship of FE is
yet to see print, and (b.) that it was thus premature to announce the claim
conclusively at the MLA session:  they would of course be right, had not
virtually all of the evidence to date BEEN presented at that session -- in the
form of papers delivered orally (the papers to which I responded).  It is
mostly and (perhaps inclusively) the recent evidence (and arguments from same)
contained in those papers which now awaits publication.  One of the reasons I
supplied my brief history of the popular press "reception" is to make the point
that the discussion here on SHAKSPER sprang from the  media coverage which
followed (for several weeks) upon the MEETING.  Thus, Don and Rick Abrams and I
were/are not "premature" with the claim in making it there:  we'd seen the
evidence before the meeting, and it was shared there with the attendees.

                                        More later.
                                        Leo Daugherty
