What purports to be a reasoned and rational analysis of an alleged Shakespeare manuscript at the British Museum, though De Moineaux makes his position on the Bacon-Shakespeare controversy fairly clear: "Which could have possibly been the author of plays and poems that 'touch the horison of all human thought:' a butcher's apprentice or a college alumnus; a mischievous poacher or an attache of an embassy; a Stratford toper or a London Barrister?"
