A Surprise From Clara Alexandria from São Paulo, Brazil!


Dear Sirs,

My name is Clara Alexandria from São Paulo, Brazil. My late father ,
Areolino Lopes de Alexandria - PY2BFH, was a keen amateur radio operator
who talked to people from all over the world. Among his things I found a
vintage QSL from Cap. Lyman M. Edwards dated 1960 and decided to send it
along. I hope it will be a nice addition to the collection of Mr. Edwards's 
amateur radio memorabilia.

Best regards,

Clara Alexandria
