Dear Valerie,

Didi you get my fax OK ?? This sheet is the official paper from Swiss federation of the deaf (fench speaking part of Switzerland)... I just checked before sending it to you... to see wether all handshapes where there...  and actually I notice there's nothing for our datylology /M/ /N/ and /T/... I
didn't notice anything else missing... but I'll check once more with your SSS -> and tell you which  are the one missing! (+ for the numbers)

No hurry!!! take time to enjoy life!!

 and take care

SignWriting users in Japan, Colombia and Norway are waiting for work from me, so it is good to plan in advance. It may take a month at least, before I could get to it...My fax number is below...
