Re: Chapter 20, Florida Water Atlas

Dear Jake:

Thanks for your note of 5 April 1983 on the above topic. To show you our
progress, attached is the outline and writing assignments of the National
Systems section. Please note that George Wilson is now the DER co-author.

We will be completing the writing by the week of 18 April. We each want
to review the total document before submitting the final draft to you. We
feel we can accomplish this by 2 May. Call me if this presents any problem.

Sincerely,
