Dear Charlie --
I am sending a copy of the manuscript which I mentioned. If you have the time I wish you would look it over and return any
comments as soon as possible as I would like to get it to the proceedings to make the earliest issue I can. There is no need
to return the ms.
I hope this won't be too much for you -- Thanks in advance anyway --
