"Thank you very much indeed for giving us such a good talk last night - I know that everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.
I heard nothing but praise and enthusiasm afterwards together with demands for you to come again sometime! Your visual effects, knowledge,
connection with the audience and sense of humour combined to give an excellent evening - you told us such a complete story about Pompeii.
It was a far more wide ranging talk than I had anticipated, every aspect of which was fascinating. Your easy going manner made my
job as organiser a pleasure and I thank you for that! I hope to see you again sometime if you are willing to come and tell us about Herculaneum."
