Hello Alyssah,

This award you received for your exhibit is great. My congratulations! It is an open door for exhibitions at higher levels.  About three weeks ago I sent you a cover containing a number of Elisabethan stamps, including the first set of Ghana (that was Goldcoast before). It is the complete first set overprinted for the new independent state …  Go on exhibiting.  I did this about 70 times.  I have a bookshelf overcrowded with medals.  They are all from Germany,  Ireland,  and Luxembourg (countries which may be strange to you).  At the moment I am struggling against snow - what must be very unknown to your south area you are living in.  Have a good time and a lot of success
