I am well interested in your letter. I must apologise for the slowness of my reply. I have been away at the hot baths of Vitreous China for a month of restoration and recuperation and the fax was awaiting me on my return.

I believe the final resolution of my contract is a way to achieve this.
What are your instructions?
