      Dear Basil,
      I am so pleased that this project is progressing well! Congratulations for your perseverance and trust.
      I contributed such a small amount that it’s really not worth your time to send me a letter for tax purposes. Just enjoy the show! I wish I could come down to Washington and enjoy it as well. I am coaxing my daughter, who lives in Washington, to be my ambassador.
      With love,
