Letter addressed to the Secretary

Letterhead reads: The Company of Merchant Adventurers of the City of York

Dear Fiona,

I should be grateful if you could pass on my thanks and appreciation to the members of the University of York Gilbert & Sullivan Society who sang so nicely for us at our summer fund-raising supper last Tuesday. We had a record attendance and talking to members and their guests, the opportunity to hear Gilbert and Sullivan was clearly a major attraction in an evening which raised over £2,000.00.
I hope the singers also enjoyed the evening and I am grateful to Pippa and yourself in particular and to Mhairi Sheail for the assistance in setting up the performance. Members and guests all left in a very cheerful frame of mind.

With best wishes.

Yours sincerely,

Colin Shepherd

Governor
