Dear Mr. Brinckerhoff:
This will confirm my telephone call to you office last week, which
call was in responses to your letter dated May 30, 1972.
In accordance with the requirements of the Tucson Heritage Foundation
that any organization or group who wishes to have a room in the
"Casa"; to ask that organization or group to donate $5,000.00
for the restoration of the "Casa".
On behalf of the Soza / Sosa families, I have undertaken the task
of raising $5,000.00 to donate to the Tucson Heritage Foundation
for the purpose of designating one room as the "Jose Maria
Sosa Room". I have sent you a copy of a letter that I have
sent to 700 Soza / Sosa families, seeking to raise the $5,000.00.
A choice front room is what we would expect for our family, and
if the Carrillo family is not able to raise their $5,000.00, a room
should be made available anyway. I should think that the Tucson
Heritage Foundation and the Arizona Historical Society would be
interested in an authentic representation in the "Casa"
and feature the families more intimately connected with the "Casa".
By copy of this letter, which I request your office forward to
the Tucson Heritage Foundation, I am requesting their confirmation
that a room is being reserved for a future "Jose Maria Sosa
Room". If a time limit in involved, I want to know that, as
we definitely want that room, and will expend all, or most of all
of our free time in raising the $5,000.00 donation.
Please request the Tucson Heritage Foundation to acknowledge and
confirm our request.
