Dear Carla and Jim,
Thank you, Carla, for your interesting letter of 18 February, 1997 with your encouraging and splendid commentary about the relevance of Dewey Larson's Beyond Space and Time to the philosophy and practice of the L/L Research Activity, led and conducted by Jim McCarty, your husband, and yourself.
With your permission and the recommendations of ISUS Board members, we would like to publish your Letter in the forthcoming Spring, 1997 issue of Reciprocity-ISUS News. While strategic and even expedient reasons were afoot a decade ago to justify your decision nominally to keep your L/L Research Inquiry apart from that of Dewey Larson, it appears to me and others of ISUS that this is no longer in the best interest of either of us. For one thing probably no other group I know of has given so much support during the past more than a decade to recruiting subscribers to Reciprocity and members to ISUS, Inc., as L/L Research through the circulation of your publications to persons outside and inside prisons of our country.
All of the above and more that it is better for the present to leave unsaid, has raised up a brainstorm among some of us, including myself: we of ISUS seek a new location, preferably east of our country's Midwest to convene the Twenty-Second Annual Meeting of the Members of the International Society of Unified Science in your Kentucky in early August, 1997.
We wish to request that you as members in good standing of ISUS consider through your L/L Research Group hosting our 1997 Annual Meeting. To begin with, we ask only that you give some thought to this venture. You and we have until April 15 to decide. This is the deadline for preparing to circulate the Spring, 1997 issue of Reciprocity-ISUS News to begin publicizing the Annual Meeting.
My telephone number is (555) 555-5555. Dr. Ron Blackburn's number in California is (555) 555-5555. In making time count it would be helpful for you to send to me a telephone number where I can reach you.
Faithfully yours, Frank
