Comment:        Two Apologies and How to Get SHK 10.0500

Dear SHAKSPEReans:

I'm not sure how many have noticed but traffic on SHAKSPER has been very
high of late, requiring two to three hours for me to edit and post the
submissions. Yesterday, I made several mistakes.

First, SHK 10.500, the first digest of the day, was extremely long.
[Delete long story about two daughters, one eighteen and suffering from
jet-lag; the other five and a half, enough said.] I made a decision to
deviate from my normal procedures and sent the digest as an attachment
rather than as a mail messages. [Delete even longer story about what I
do to get SHAKSPER to members.] As a result, many of your mailers
received the digest garbled. If you would like to receive a copy of SHK
10.0500 that you can read, send the command GETPOST SHAKSPER 7895 to

readable copy. If not, contact me for further instructions.

Second, I not only miss-numbered Robert Miola's message, a copy of the
letter he wrote to the editors of *Shakespeare: The Roman Plays*, edited
by Graham Holderness, Bryan Loughrey, and Andrew Murphy, but I also
misspelled his last name in the Header as Kevin J. Donovan

>I imagine it's already been pointed out that not only has Professor >Miola been injured by the practice described in his posting, but his >name has been misspelled in the header to the list. I once knew two >sisters named Minola, but that's another story.

Again, I offer my apologies: Robert Miola is a noteworthy authority and
a kind and gentle man.

Contritely yours,
Hardy
