Kiren will give this order priority attention on Wednesday in lieu of other
pending work. She won't be back in the office again until Tuesday after the
I noticed the requirement for a signed original invoice so that there are no
expensive and excessive taxes.  Does that mean that Patricia needs to invoice on
behalf of TUG for 410 CDs and the TUG office invoice for 490 or should the office
invoice for all 900?
If Patricia ships to us and we in turn send one shipment with one invoice it may
expedite the process but the combined shipment wouldn't leave Portland until
Tuesday July 6. Perhaps Bernard can suggest the best way to handle this so the
shipment clears Customs more easily. - RD
