Re: [BKARTS] Here's a doozie!



Dear Abby,

If you are anywhere near Relma (book supplies)in Paris, would you have time
to find out if their glaire ("fixor") is available in the U.S.?  I realize
this is exactly the kind of question they will just either ignore or be
insulted by, but if you have the chutzpah, give it a try, please.

Many thanks.

Signa

Paul,
Let me know if you don't find an answer, because I'm in France and could
find
someone who'd know.
