Hallo Joshua,

Overall, very nice. I'm not one of the people who post to the list who 
is a professional in layout or design, but it has a good balance in general.

The only significant suggestion I have has to do the the relationship 
between the body text on page two and the address footnote. I don't like 
that empty space just above it. It looks like something is missing, and 
perhaps there is, since that doesn't seem to be a complete sentence just 
above it. A minor issue is that the two inner margins on pages 2 and 3 
are not the same.

Nonetheless, an attractive piece of work. It looks like they picked the 
right person to do this.
