Dear Mr Dobson,
my name is Marianna and I am an Italian researcher. Lately, I am making researches on a photographer of Italian origins called Antonio Beato. Mr Ken Jacobson told me that you made some important discoveries on the 19th century photografher. For this reason, I would like to make you some important questions on him. Would you be, than, so kind of giving me your private contacts so that I could better explain you the subject of my enquiry? If you will accept this, I will be very grateful.
With all my confidence and respect,
kind regards

Dear Sebastian,
I am very pleased to have made contact with you. I should have contacted you earlier as we do share a common interest in the activities of photographers in China. You probably have had some recent discussions with Terry B.
At the moment I am heavily involved in the final stage of an exhibition on an engineer-photographer who was assistant to Benjamin Baker the designer of the Forth Rail Bridge.

As soon as this is over I will be returning to matters Chinese.
