Dear Dawn Lyons,

Hello! How are you?
Now, I'm fighting to build up the Spinet. It's hard to get time, because of my job.
I just work on only Saturday and Sunday. And today almost finished casing and some part of kbd assembling.
Anyway I just started and need time.

By the way by shipping, there are some dents on the bottom board, but I can clear about that, it's no problem.

Best regards,
Harry (Shoichi) S
