Enclosed is your ticket for your transportation to and from Dayton. We trust these accommodations are satisfactory. A room will be reserved for your use at the Sheraton-Dayton Hotel upon arrival. The airport bus will drop you off at the Hotel. Please come prepared for reasonably cold and rainy weather (10[[degree symbol]] Fahrenheit) We are still trying to arrange for your transportation with Jimmy Stewart and General LeMay. If we are successful, we will advise you and in that case you should return the ticket to us for cancellation. I trust the attached information sheet covers most of the information you will need.
