Good afternoon and thanks for your short outline concerning the Petersons who had once been my professors at Tabriz University. I am personally in debt to both of these nice people and I have been sourcing for them for a long time but unfortunately I couldn't get any trace from them. Today,I am very delighted that I could read a few lines about these precious people. I would appreciate if you would kindly give me their email address or my email address to them to talk to them again and show my gratitude to my honorable teachers.
