What a lovely boy you have and he entertained us with a lot of funny stories. may he live long and prosper. Hope you are feeling well. That Empire Hotel your at I think is fine I spent two weeks there once with M. Gehley? and family. Kind regards to the Doctor. Yours F. S. Church."

    HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).
