LLL V.ii.75 [Maria to Rosaline] Folly in fools bears not so strong a note / As foolery in the wise when wit doth dote
Luc 208 [Tarquin to himself] my posterity, shamed with the note, / Shall curse my bones
R2 I.i.43 [Bolingbroke to Mowbray] the more to aggravate the note, / With a foul traitor's name stuff I thy throat
