Hi Kari,

Thanks so much for your letter. Could you please clarify the materials that will be provided after the $20 is sent?

Thanks again for all of your help.

Best,
Beryl

From: Kari Breault

Hi,

I checked with our accountant as she is the one who has saved this information. She informed me that it is most likely just an invoice. She will not know for sure until she goes to Archives and obtains this information.

I have asked her to not make the trip to archives until I receive payment.
