5 From across the Pacific…..
Tony P, Got your treatise, extensive as it is, …… All the best to your meeting and warmest regards to all. I am most confident the “Chicago Mob” will ensure an enjoyable and rewarding weekend for all of you. I remember vividly when I met them years ago for approval of the CME project. Not only was I treated well but also they turned the tide in support of the CME project. I will always be indebted to them. Cheers to Class 67! Willie
