Unable to decrypt/verify from own machine

The Setup
I run Windows XP using GnuPG version 1.4.10.  

A client and I have exchanged our keys.  I successfully imported his key and
attempted to encrypt a file to send him.  My command line is as follows:

gpg --passphrase mypassphrase --compress-algo 1 --cipher-algo cast5 -u
me at myemail.com -r client at hisemail.com -o
C:\user\encryption\out\targetFile.xls.gpg -se

The Problem
When trying to decrypt or verify the encrypted file, I get the following
No secret key available Keyring does not have the secret key
(0xA352B4E9003B38FA) needed to decrypt this message.

My key's ID is 1F1EA8F8 and the client's ID is 5872AF6A.  I have no idea why
it would be asking for A352B4E9003B38FA.

This is likely a beginner's mistake, but I'm at a loss!
