As I reach the end of my Foreign Service career, one of my greatest regrets is saying goodbye to the Hirshorn Company. Our relationship of over sixteen years has never been anything but pleasant. You have always been gentlemen and ladies, and smarter than most. I will miss our occasional exchanges.

All the best,
