Dear Dayne,

I just looked into this more carefully and the report that you want me to refer to for the assignment is 166 pages! I am going to make you an offer for more credit for this assignment because this involves a lot of work. The final report also must be 15 to 20 pages! :-). I am not saying I cannot do it, but I really need more credit for it. I will make you an offer and please do not reject it. I can make you an offer that you can afford. All you would need to do is let me know.

Kindest regards,

Donna
