So grateful to kind gentleman

Dear Sir,

May I say thank you to the group of people that stood around me as I lay sprawled on the ground, at approximately 2.10pm on February 23 outside The Edge on Reid Street.

I had inelegantly fallen face-forward on to the pavement and was contemplating my situation, as to whether I had shattered any bones or possibly just my dignity, when a gentleman quietly asked me my name, to which I replied in the positive.

He instructed me to sit up slowly, and then grasped me under my arms and hauled me to a standing upright position. He accomplished this so very skilfully and kindly, and I would so like to thank him for his benevolence owing to my calamitous state, and to add that my self-esteem was redeemed almost immediately.

Rosie Cross then insisted on me recuperating in her shop, The Edge, where I was extended the invitation to sit, and was offered water and even coffee while she tended to her selling of menswear.

I am rather bruised and battered, but I so want to extend my sincere thanks to the gentleman that was so gentle and so very nice to me.
