Dear colleague,

This is a semi-open[1] invitation to a cocktail party
during this year's Modern Language Association conference
in New York. Since I live there, I thought that the least
I can do is to have everyone over who might be in town for
the event. Please come! We'll all get the chance to schmooze.

Cocktails, Saturday, 28 December 2002 from 8.00-10.00 p.m.,
2 Beekman Place Apt. 4A (that's at 50th Street, East of
First Ave.), New York. Please RSVP to me by e-mail at
jester at . Feel free to bring a friend or other

I apologize in advance for any duplicated receipt of this
message, but I'm sending it to a few lists as well as to
some people personally.

Hope to see you there.

With best wishes,

Jesse Sheidlower
