      Dear Dylan,

      I am pleased your new Dunhill Pipe has arrived safely and is in perfect
      condition. I knew it would be as I have had a number of pipes from James
      Barber and they have always been perfect when they arrive.

      With kind regards,

      Peter
      pipeman of england.
