It may just look like a rather old
piece of a4 paper, but it is in fact a contract
between I.B.Dicken and R.L.Gretton and all associated with the band known as

The Seller (Baliwen)"I
came by the letter by retrieving it from a rubbish bin at work. Bernard used
to work at the same animation company as i.D.Street was my boss and he is the
one mentioned in the contract, once the loan had been repaid he thought there
was no need to keep it, i thought differently."
