OMG you guys!!

I always feel sheepish posting links. Not really sure it is ok. But look what I found, look!

I think it is his handwriting. I have never heard of him having a seccy. And really, why would he? Especially when he was living in a cheap apartment he shared with another guy. My feeling is that he did not have much money.

If any of you know that I am wrong, please let me know. I could very well be wrong-- often am. But I so want to believe that that is his writing.

I've never heard of him having a secretary! He wouldn't have been able to afford one. It might be his handwriting. I don't know whether complete scripts were ever copied - the actors just had their own parts and cues copied out.

Glad that you think i could be right. I know that you think about him and his world, as i do also.

Why shouldn't it be his writing? Believe it is until proven otherwise. :)

It's from wikipedia. It said there ...could be from his secretary Hugh Sanford... I highly doubt it too that he could afford one. But who knows?

There is a Marlowe Society :)

And here is another document that could be his handwriting:

Handwritings are extremely fascinating :) I hope something from ours will survive time too...
