Abstract

Send you sample of green stock. Notice curl of fiber; Bradley says he can't work it well. This is from last batch bamboo from Japan. "I like the looks of the curve and the bamboo marked R or Hanchikee that I think it would be worth while to order some immediately." Sends cipher so TAE can place encrypted order for 50,000 fibers similar.
