Dear Mr. Ferro:
I am pleased to report that the custom Mount Vernon Peace Dove weathervane that your firm created for me has recently been installed atop the Drennan Residence in Spotsylvania, Virginia, and that it looks fabulous.
Thank you very much for your fine craftsmanship. I trust that it will grace the rooftop of our recently renovated home for decades to come.
