Please use me as a positive reference for your company any time.

Then come the gigantic masses of the Platt Kofel and Lang Kofel; the first, sliced off, as by the malice of a Titan, at a single blow; the second, an array of splintered spires, ashy-tinted or pale yellow.” – Gilbert and Churchill, 1864
