“Hey Dan, I just wanted you to know that the Licensor loved the new Tonka
Joe. We’ve had a difficult time getting stuff though in the past,
and your Joe Illustration passed with flying colors. Anyway, it was a
pleasure working with you and if anything comes up that we need help with,
I’ll be in touch.

Great job and thanks for coming through.
