Dear Miss Kimmerle:

Will you please refer to your order acknowledgement no. M-10741 dated May 3, 1956, which covered three Bendix Air Race trophies. 

It now seems likely that we will want this order duplicated this year as the U. S. Air Force is probably going to order the Bendix Trophy Race flown form the West Coast to Washington D. C. on Sunday, July 28.

I am dropping you this note to ask you to be prepared to handle the order when I can place it with you, which will be just as rapidly as we have positive assurance from the Air Force.

This would naturally mean that you would have to be prepared to deliver these trophies to an address which I will supply in Washington, D. C. not later than July 22. I would also like an estimate of the costs.

May I hear from you?
