Dear Robert

A week ago today we were on our way to choose our sundial!   It is now in our garden and looking superb. We wondered if you would like to call and see it in its new home whenever you deliver an order nearby. We would be so pleased to see you again – we really appreciate the care and craftsmanship that has gone into its construction and would love to hear more about them – maybe over a cup of tea?
With good wishes and many thanks again…

                   *                      *                      *

I felt I must write a few words to thank you for the superb Armillary and Pedestal you supplied for my husband's birthday present. It really is a magnificent feature in our garden, and greatly admired by any of our visitors. I would also like to add we very much appreciated your personal delivery service, most unusual in these modern times.
With best wishes and regards…

Dear Sundials

Please thank everyone concerned in the production of the Taurus armillary. It's really lovely and we're delighted with it. You've all done a fantastic job!
Thank you…

Thank you for sending the Armillary which has arrived safely. We are delighted with it and hope to install it shortly. We have purchased a plinth which we feel will suit it admirably. The message is quite perfect and the finish and workmanship very special. We shall certainly cherish it. It was a great pleasure to meet you and admire your workshop.
Yours sincerely…

Dear Robert

I know I'm probably writing this while you're still on your way home, but I just wanted to say how thrilled we all are with the sphere – it looks fantastic and my parents are delighted! Hope your journey home wasn't too bad.
