SUBJECT: BEST WISHES AND PENDING ISSUE
1. I was saddened to hear of the President' acceptance of
your resignation. The Administration is losing one of its
most effective leaders. Thank you for your tireless efforts
to further the President's Economic Program.
2. Please accept my best wishes as you return to your family
in Texas. I too am leaving public service to return home. I
hope our paths cross again soon.
3. One item of pending business. I phoned you on Monday
about BIS license approval of non-sensitive GE spare parts
for a power plant in Syria. Please advise who within
Commerce we should follow-up with on this important issue.
4. All the best in your future endeavors.
