Dear Mike and Kathy, 

Graham Arader has arranged to photograph the map collection you have donated in order to create a catalogue for you.

The catalogue itself will be a rich resource for the study of art and history at our school.  As our planning for the collection moves forward, I will keep you informed.

I would also like to have a plaque acknowledging your gift to the Dwight School Foundation.  Would you please let me know how you would like it to read?

I look forward to seeing you in New York.

Warm regards, 
Stephen Spahn

Chancellor – thanks for making time for us to visit on such short notice.  Graham and spoken highly of you and the Dwight School so I was glad to have the opportunity to meet you and see a portion of your NYC facilities.  Thanks for the offer of dinner which we will hold you to the next time we are in the City.  In the meantime, it sounds as if Willy has beat us to the offer for you to visit Birmingham.  It is lucky for he and his family that you indeed gave him a new roof for his home, for while it was snowing in the East it was pouring rain in Birmingham!

Thanks again for the hospitality, and we look forward to continuing to work with you and the referenced maps.  All the best.

Dear Mike and Kathy, 

It was wonderful that you were able to visit the Dwight School yesterday.  

The map collection is an important resource for students.

My wife and I would love to host you for dinner when you are next in New York.

Warm regards,

Thank you for allowing Mike Mouron and his wife, Kathy, to visit the Dwight School today.  We are looking forward to seeing how you have inspired your students with my maps hanging in your school with signage.

Also wanted to let you know that the world's greatest Linnaean scientist will be speaking at 1016 Madison this Friday at 6 30 pm.  His lecture on the marger of art and science is the best art history lecture I have ever heard and it would be a great deal to me if you could get some of the Dwight teachers to attend.  What he says is what I want to put into the minds of students all over the world.

Thank you and see you soon.
