Didn't Shakespeare steal this plot?

I think he may have. I read a lot of Shakespeare in those days as part of my studies. Remind me which play it was in?

I was thinking about the scene in Hamlet (told in flashback) where Hamlet discovers the letter from Claudius ordering his execution, and then has to decide what to do about it.
