My very dear friend and sensitive writer, Tricia

I read what you did, made the changes but must say that I was awed by how you changed the mood of some of the phrases - their start and their ending. Example at the end: How enriched...... etc. These have broken the occasional monotony of my testimony. Your changes have touched me so much that I dare say my story may have captured your interest. Thank you for a wonderful turn-around and for your precious contribution. Warmly, Ralph -- Montreal

This is just a note if you ever want one for a reference. You have worked with me now for over 20 years. Many many manuscripts in High Finance, Debt Equity Swaps, Accounting and Business Management have passed through your capable hands. You have edited my curriculum materials, PhD thesis and many more. StiIl, I am so glad, we will work together once more on yet another document which is the management book for the Middle East. You have been a great asset to me in helping me not only move ahead in my career, but on a personal level as well, as I consider you my friend. Best of luck in all your endeavours... Sincerely, F Elali Bahrain / Montreal
