Hi

I wondered if you'd had chance to look at this yet.

It has belatedly occurred to me that the encryption message on August 6th above might conceivably have contained an answer - although this was not at all clear - but when I clicked on it just now to double check it said it was no longer valid.

Yours faithfully,

Fiona Nicholson
