Hello Mr. Brown,

We have received your below request. I am sending you a CD-ROM by mail today and you should have it by end of week. I am unable to email this to you as it’s a rather large file.
In order to open the video there is a lot of code on the CD that you will need to download first so that the video will play.

Thank you,

Ingrid Boswell
