excellent and about time.

Perhaps we might read some things re Jonson, which are not tales for a pleasant change: Were is it written that he walked to Scotland? Where do we see the origin of Jonson's two by two grave? What exactly was the mark branded on his thumb? Where's the evidence?

Let's have some references we can rely on.

Good luck all.
