Dear Paul,
Thanks for the email. You don't need to do anything further, unless  
you don't want to attend the banquet. Those who signed up for the boat  
ride will automatically have their registration changed to the banquet  
unless they tell us that they don't want to go to the banquet--so far  
there are only 8 or 9 who have signed up for the boat ride. The  
difference is £1, but we can absorb the extra few pounds. I look  
forward to seeing you at IMS9 in July.

>> Other fringe events with extra charges include "Milton in Music", a
>> concert of settings of Milton by Handel and other composers peformed

>> Giles Cripplegate (the church where Milton is buried), £15; and (as

>> semi-staged reading of "Samson Agonistes" at St Giles Cripplegate, £8;
>> and a coach trip to Milton's cottage in Chalfont St Giles, £12. The
>> conference fee is £135 for those registering on or before 15 May 2008

>> Hill (reading his recent poems), Ann Hughes, Laura Knoppers, Nicholas
>> von Maltzahn, John Rumrich, Regina Schwartz, anbd Quentin Skinner, and
>> there will also be a lecture, open to the public, by Annabel Patterson.
>> Registration forms, in Word or PDF format, can be downloaded from the

>> the registration forms. There is also information about hotels and
>> other accommodations in London on the IES website. It promises to be
>> an excellent conference, and I look forward to seeing many of you there.
