William Shakespeare

A letter of complaint from William Shakespeare has been discovered in the Stratford upon Herald’s archive.

Addressed to the Editor and dated *March 1613 the letter contains perhaps unsurprisingly, the usual Stratford upon Avon talking points, i.e. The amount of dog excrement on the streets, cracked paving stones, the ‘usefulness’ of town councillors and an obscure reference to ‘Knowledge of the peasant woman, Long Lucy’ in which Shakespeare states he has, ‘never met the woman in question nor presented himself in the manner described by this person’.

*1613 The year William Shakespeare is believed to have retired to his home town from London.
