gung hay fat choy

I think I got that right … will check. Like the Purloined Letter, the physical evidence of Kit Marlowe’s complicity in the great heist of John Dee’s library & laboratory of 1589 … the flying device Marlowe used in Faustus … Dee invented and used that when he produced “Pax” at Cambridge as an undergraduate. Marlowe probably got the plans and/or the device itself as booty from the heist … and when cataloguing his missing books and items at that August 1592 meeting of the suits he included the five letters from deVere from 1570 … AND he started the Edward VII signature first noted in a letter to Burghleigh in 1569!! to stop it in 1603 at her death … when all hopes of succession vanished …

Kyd’s papers ransacked by the gendarmes for any of Dee’s papers & letters … just how much did Kit know … that Sonnet about the Rival Poet … wasting his evenings with his intelligencer ‘friends’ … the shock of seeing ?Southhampton? in Kit’s verse as shocking as Dee seeing his device bearing Faustus to heaven on  Marlowe’s stage … Marlowe really got in his face with that …
