Dear John (not Jhon, sorry for my mistake) :

Thank you very much for all your offers and explanations in
Spanish. My English is not very fluent for writing but I do
understand it well, anyway I feel very comfortable when you put
some words in Spanish, "ya llegara el dia en que todos hablemos
un mismo idioma" (translation: "the day will come when we all
speak the same language").

I'd be pleased to send you a copy of the tape for you to convert
it and upload it in your website if that could be possible, for
my friend is going to be out of Montevideo for at least two
months and it would take me some time to get someone else to do
the work. Please feel free to e-mail me directly to my internet
address if you want, so to know where and how to send the tape.

I do also have an interesting audio file which I digitalized from
the radio while a well-known (in my country) radio-speaker (right
words?) was having a multiple sighting (avistamiento, is that
right?) at night with many witnesses around him. I had the chance
to talk to him and I went to the place where they had the
sighting, talked to some witnesses and I could prove this was not
a trick.

Dear Carlos,

How can I obtain a copy of this video, please let me know.

Dear Philip:

No trouble to send you a copy of the tape if you're interested,
anyway I'm sure you're going to have it on the web very soon,
thanks to our friend John Velez. But please tell me your address
and I'll also send one to you for free, as soon as I can. I must
say that I have little spare time, for I have two jobs and I'm
only free on sundays (this is Uruguay, you know :))). That's why
I don't participate in the list actively although I get the
messages since two years ago.

Thanks for caring,


PS:  Well, at the moment I have both copies done, so I will need your
address where to send them.
