Dear Kim,

Inews-goodall-lettern haste – but I wanted to thank you so, so much for the two gorilla carvings. They do make me smile. They shall join my other African ape carving – if you get a moment to tell me their history I’d be grateful.

My private and secret not-to-be-copied or shared email is…

I’m so glad we pulled you away from your daughter so you could join us up in my somewhat crowded room! A very merry gathering of dedicated and committed individuals.

Off to catch plane. But I didn’t want to leave this space, where we enjoyed some moments together, without writing and thanking you. I am very touched, very grateful.

Good luck with everything – it is such important work.

With thanks and love,
