Henry asks for a bit of guidance but also seems to be having a bad synapse day.
Dear Mrs Umuleri,
I am most grateful and appreciative of your understanding and forbearance.
Indeed I do appear to need the certificate that you mention. I must confess to still not really understanding why but need it I do. Or so it seems.
How do I proceed from here to eternity is a very long time waits for no man oh man do I need a cup of tea for two bad better luck next time.
I look forward to your advice on this.
