For those of you that are following this thread, Michael Belt
from So. Africa received his rolls today (8/2/97). The order
to QRS was confirmed on 7/14/97 and most likely went out the
following day (although the date on his invoice is 7/16/97).
I am sending a copy of this letter to QRS so that they can
advise me (or Michael) as to what to do about the one roll
with 'folds' and also to give them the information about
delivery time and customs duties for future reference.
