Where Charles (aka Philips Akande) is reminded that if he wants me to send him a fax I will need a fax number. And J Cosmo Newbery establishes a company, "Paws for Reflection", a boutique choreography studio specialising in teaching Tai Chi to spaniels. I thought this was a cute company name until I did an internet search and found a squillion of them. (sigh!)


Dear Dr Nujoma,

I have the forms and letterheaded claim for payment.

What I seem to lack is a fax number to use to send them back to you. Please advise me of a fax number at your soonest convenience.

How quickly do you think the transaction will proceed?

Yours keenly,

J. Cosmo Newbery.


Dear Newbery,

Thank you for your email.My fax number is 234-1-759-7912.I await your prompt response.

Regards, Charles Nujoma.


Tai Chi for Spaniels. It seemed to fill a niche. And I needed a letterhead for the contract payment claim. I'll spare you the whole document - they are all the same. The nuts and bolts of the contract, as provided by my team of synchronised spaniels, is as follows:

Contract No: NNPC/PED/3039-X/99
CONSTRUCTION, SUPPLY AND INSTALLATION OF OIL PIPELINES EQUIPMENT FOR THE OIL TERMINUS OF THE PORT HARCOURT AND WARRI DOCKS AND BARGES FOR THE BONNY-ABONEMA OIL JETTY. TELEGRAPHIC TRANSFER OF PAYMENT DUE, BEING THIRTY SIX MILLION FIVE HUNDRED AND SIXTY ONE THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY ($36,561,000.00)
