I was also interested in talking to Sherry, and I sent her mail.
She said she had received mail from two more people in the DC
area, and suggested meeting somewhere so we could talk face-to-face.

Sherry and I are planning to meet on Monday the 17th of July,
at 6.30 pm, at the La Madeleine Cafe on Rockville Pike.
The cafe is in the Mid-Pike Plaza, 11858 Rockville Pike,
and its phone number is (301) 984-8449. Please send me mail
if you are interested in coming. If you can't make it that
day or time, we might be able to adjust it.

Sherry, thanks for taking the time to talk to us.
