After a few days I had a reply from the slave. He has been occupied doing painting and maintenance work, paid of course. He wants and needs to complete his financial commitments before commencing his enslavement.
I will be meeting with him in Manchester which is approximately halfway from my home and his, not only will this serve as purpose of seeing the slave in the flesh, it will be his first time of meeting me also. The meeting will be an opportunity to have a proper discussion and to finalise if he is the correct slave for me.
After some months of silence progress is being made. I am looking forward to this but of course does not hide the fact he is 61, a year older than myself. A younger slave would be better of course, but there is no reason why I cannot have a selection of slaves as properties: ranging from Peter, to the father and son, to JJ. I have a selection of males to serve me.
