I know from Mr.Merchant that you are not in India, but I assume this letter will eventually reach you.
As you know from Mr.Merchant, the B.D.Garga collection was a great success at the Festival From India. We thank you very much for the opportunity to let us use it and hope that there is something in the future that we can do as well, as we hope that next year we can have another Indian Festival .If you have any ideas, please let me know.
We have had especially built a very fine packing case for the collection, as the cardboard packing case was not in very good shape and we want no further damage to occur to the photos. (Some of the corners were bent, etc. upon arrival, but no serious damage.) This we have done at our own expense.
Ismail Merchant is taking care of getting your honorarium to you, and it is more than we had originally said - this was procured with great difficulty on my part, as the Festival was very expensive to produce and advertise and the American Society for Eastern Arts who presented the Festival lost a great deal of money. At any rate, I have done the best I can for you.
Please let me know if you have ever done any special projects for children as our office is very interested in things for children.
