Dear sir's, it was some-what hard to be really acurate on the milages in your form, but while these things were going on, I was keeping notes. I compiled them all down to a journal type document, dates & times. (06) pages. And I can further extend points in there, in a phone conversation. I will be happy to send you a copy of this also. Respectfully, E w. moss. No safetyd efect listed.
