Just a quick note to thank you, your wonderful children and your amazing staff for such a warm and hospitable visit to the gallery Wednesday. I can say with certainty that we left with a greater sense of our common vision and passion, and we look forward to working with you as diligently as possible to realize the aspirations and inspirations conveyed by your generosity. I also want to thank both Kate and Caleb for the extra time of guiding us through your rare book gallery and the tremendous opportunity to peruse such treasures as your De Bry, Eytzinger, and Ortellius (including that extraordinary Spanish edition!). Thanks so much again for the opportunity to partner with you, and I look forward to many subsequent further encounters with you and yours!
Very best wishes,
