a familiar mood  
From the Pepys diary feed, a bit I'd not seen before:

Dined at home very well, and spent all the afternoon with my wife within doors, and getting a speech out of Hamlett, “To bee or not to bee,” without book.

I wonder what the earliest reference we have to the fame of this speech is?
