Dear Friends,
I amt king the liberty of addressing you collectively
due to the press of time.
I have been advised by the State Department that
approximately $700.00 of American and foreign
currency which was unidentifiable, was recovered
from the air crash at Orly Air Base.
1/
Normally such funds are deposited by the General
Accounting Office into the United States Treasury.
However , due to the circumstances involved, it is the
feeling of - the American Embassy in Paris that these
funds should be used as a memorial to the Atlantians
who lost their lives in that crash. It has been suggested
that this money be contributed to the Atlanta Art Association Memorial Fund.
I would appreciate hearing from you as to the distribution you wish made and if the suggestion of the Art
Association Fund is agreeable, l will be pleased to
ask the Embassy to appropriate the $700,00 to this
worthy cause,
Sincerely yours ,
Ivan Allen, Jr.
