Dr Jean-Pierre Roth
PO Box 2800
7th February, 2008
Dear Dr Roth,I will be visiting your fair and beautiful country for a holiday over the next 10 days and would self-servingly be most grateful if you would kindly follow the lead of Mr Trichet and suggest/confirm that that the tightening cycle in Europe is, in fact, over, and that it is now safe for thrill-seeking investors to once again use your currency as a source of funds for all manner of opportunity that is beginning to emerge.
Such a statement would go a long way towards offsetting the horrid appreciation that has (almost) made me regret not booking in at Crested Butte.
Thank you for your consideration and I remain hopeful of your immediate assistance,
