I thank yw very mh ar trasmxLtting to us the letter from Fredeick C.
Da n, aristmt PNstmt GQ ral, relative to the inquiria we have id a to
th, *leahtbl avall bllit of the old Govenor's a lace, now a postoffico in iSt
AJtgutio. i are plesed that thy are willing to undertake this survy, and have
omt elimnarted the matter as iqposa.sle, out of hand.
maK e w ere not oseoeaful in getting anV funds into the NatYlal Park
Si'rve*a appropriation which could be used for a national exibitiam building we
eat Lthr succeed in obtaining the Governor's Palace, or find aom other pathW'
to S100,000 in federal funds to build a new building.
we all feel that tb. emphasis you have placed on the need for a documentary
rxhiMitaa eater, under sponsorhip of- the United States Goverwmnt, particularly
.Lth the Spanish Center assured, the Pan American Center now a very likely
poibdMlit, it becomes increasing important to assure the official and financial
participation of the United States Gove nt. Since our requested appropriation y
nevrw gt through the judioiary suboomLttee in the House, this national exhibition
eeoter gm be all we will ever get from the federal govenamnt.
We were all awry that our meeting cam at such a bad time for yen, but
pleased you oould attend the mibasador's reception in the evening. Yo response to
the amda rnr i y appreciated by all present, and I think touched hin deeply.
