Mr. Fred Wiseman,
1817 Oxford Street,
Berkeley, Calif.
Dear Mr. Wiseman:
This is to confirm our telephone conversation of Thursday evening.

Southwest Airways is planning is planning the stunt with the Northern California mayors at Oakland Airport some time during the next month or so to signalize the advancement in "feeder line" operation to small towns. As you were probably the first "feeder line" pilot between small cities they naturally want you featured.

Will try to meet you at the Airport some time next week to take pictures with the old plane, and will provide you with more details at that time. Mr. West has agreed to give you a message if I call there.

Thanking you for your cooperation, I remain,
Very truly yours,
