Subject:FW: Crafts writing and a question From:"Moore, Tracey" <TMoore -at- PARKERVISION -dot- COM> Date:Wed, 24 Mar 1999 15:35:50 -0500
I loved this story. I wonder if you had offered your services in your
first letter if they would have called you at all. They might have
thought you were just yet another contractor looking for work,
especially if there was a brochure enclosed. I wonder. . .
