was planned that the enclosed note from Dave Kammer would be getting
to you long before this date, so that it would not be mixed with your
Christmas mail. As it turns out, maybe this is not so bad either, for
it gives me a chance to enclose a seasonal note, and say Merry Christmas,
and wish you the best of blessings for this holiday time.
discussed the idea of trying to initiate something of what he describes
in his letter, late in October. It has taken all this time to move the
concept along and get his letter to you. I have to apologize for not
being more effective, and so, I do so, hoping that my delay will not
cool his enthusiasm or the active participation of others.
much time has already elapsed without definitive movement so this first
communique is being sent hoping that there is a response to merit a
follow-up. It is taking more time than I originally thought to gather
lists, and to get this project in motion.
is a busy season for everyone so it may not be so wise to expect a lengthy
response from you. That's all right. But suppose in your Christmas card
writing - if you still do that tradition - you sent a note to Dave and
say " Hello" and a short word about yourself and your wanting
to hear from him and others through the newsletter. It is not crucial
that this note from you arrive before Christmas -given the present timetable
that's almost impossible.
have already caused enough delay in getting this letter to you, let
me end by saying it would be great to have you join in this venture.
We have all shared so much already, and that was such a wonderful blessing,
there is now a way of opening up channels for continued contacts.
