Letter from Peter Flack

Dear <<First Name>>

This is my first attempt at a newsletter. I hope you enjoy it. I have sent it only to those who have written to me in the recent past. It will not be a regular letter but one which I intend to send only when I believe I have sufficient news of interest to you. If the past is anything to go by (and, yes, I know the future is not what it used to be), I would guess you can expect similar letters at irregular intervals throughout the year unless, of course, I hear from you to the contrary.

Regards, Peter
