Message to Margaret Wynne

Hi Margaret:

I passed on the latest email that I had for you to Esther Fulton and she tried to contact you but did not manage to get through to you.  Maybe you changed your email address at some time since August 2016.

If you read this, Margaret, please email me, then I'll pass on your current email address to Esther.

-  Thank you.
