      The notorious Casket Letters get a carefully reasoned textual analysis and it's all more improbable than fiction—fast reading, light scholarship. This is a close reading of the evidence against Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, Queen Dowager of France, Catholic claimant to Elizabeth I's Protestant throne, best known through the ages as Bloody Mary.   70 One can thus dismiss as impossible a theory put forward by Davison that the long Glasgow letter is composed from two different letters written to different persons ‘with a few rather small additions on the part of a forger’ (The casket letters, pp. , ).Cited by: 1.
