It has been brought to my attention that the transcript of *Dr. Dodypoll* on
the SHAKSPER Fileserver contains thirteen extraneous lines.  I have deleted
these lines from that version.  If you have already gotten a copy from the
archives and would like it to be accurate, delete the thirteen lines following
Katherine's "I warrant you my Lord the Duke dissembles."  These line begin with
"It is not love . . ." and end with ". . . may never do."

Not at all to slight Harry Hill, his ability to read and attempt to glean some
sense out of the more strangled lines of the Funeral Elegy, and I love a fine
voice and a grand style, and all credit to Harry for his work with this most
common piece of verse. (for this ad I should receive a free cd, yes?)  Nothing
hostile there, but Lord how can a man keep his systalic down when the
Shakespeare teachers and professors on the planet say nothing and let this
spectacular failure be lent this while as if Shakespeare wrote it?

Every publisher who puts this thing in the works whould be given strong
objections, and you have the addresses.  If you don't, I do, and how can you
let this go by?  Where is conscience after so much mute acceptance?  Where is
poetry?  Read the Funeral Elegy out of our archives. Lord, it was more sad than
anyone could have conceived, such a death upon academia and our good sense and
proper ears.
