Dawson,

The script was read well, although it sounded a bit like you were telling someone else's story rather than your own. Also, you read the script we originally sent vs the one I sent along with payment that had an edited close.

We'll go ahead with the recording you sent, however if we do need a revision in the near future would you be able to do so?

Thanks!
Nolan
