Hello, Jane. I'd like a copy, please. Thank you for this opportunity.

You may already know by the time you read this that the current value of 
36,000 Chilean pesos is about $64.00 US at the cash rate. I use for conversions.

You could ship to me at:

Pacific Rim Native Plant Nursery
115 Garfield St.
Sumas, Wa 98295

I suppose there is no chance of getting the first volume now?
