First E-Mail attempt

Subject: Answer to your answer
Hello, Daralee. Thank you for answering my first e-mail attempt. It worked!
The entire machine worked. Macintosh pulled it off with my help. I enjoyed
hearing from you, but e-mail is so very quiet, isn't it? An ordinary letter
makes noises when you take it from an envelope. It crinkles, cracks, and
pops. But here there is nothing but the strange pitter patter of keys
on the keyboard as I touch them, but that sound is so ineffable and ghostly,
it is vaguely inhuman. Anyway, thank you. A lot. Do you work with
IBM equipment? I hear it is harder than Macintosh. I can't imagine that.
Macintosh is baffling, deceitful, cantankerous. For me it is hard. Anyway,
good-bye. Take care. Richard Lee
