Hope you like the doll best wishes jayne From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Elizabeth Christian) To: email@example.com (crocus world) Subject: Re: Crofter man..need to send you some more money Date: Sat, 6 Apr 2002 15:48:25 -0500 (EST) Terrific. This is a great addition to my inernational doll collection. I had occasion to go over to the Isle of Wight a few years ago when I was in London on a job exchange, and really enjoyed my afternoon. It must be a lovely place to live. Best wishes, Elizabeth ______________________________________________
