Yours in defence of hard won priviledges and status:

Tim, the above is in total jest (as long as you divulge no more secrets and
retract your last statement as a sudden attack of fever. *G*) >>

I shal await your next posting eagerly.
PS: I wonder if you could elaborate a little on those extra services that
you mentioned after the Officer's dinner. Does this include .....doing the
