Dear Dr. Haury:
Thank you for your very generous letter of June 27, 1972, confirming
that a room is being reserved for the Soza Family, subject to the
conditions and understanding set forth in your letter.
I am aggressively working to raise the $5,000.00 for donation to
the Foundation and will expend considerable effort in meeting the
deadline of 120 days, otherwise I reserve the right to request an
extension. Mr expectation is to meet the deadline.
There is an outside possibility that I may plan a Soza Family Reunion
during Labor Day Weekend to be held in Tucson. If these plans materialize
may we use the "Casa del Gobernador" and facilities for
our reunion? The event would be used for the purpose of raising
the $5,000.00 requirement, and instilling a greater appreciation
of the cultural heritage that resides in our family. The Soza Family
would again meet the requirements of the Foundation, Please let
me know on this as tome is very limited for planning purposes.
Lastly, I note that your letterhead reads "The John Charles
Fremont House, Casa del Gobernador. My understanding is that the
"Jose Maria Sosa House" was to be known as the, and only
as the "Casa del Gobernador". I concurred in the adoption
of the name "Casa del Gobernador" , because it was supposed
to be a compromise between the Soza Family and the Carrillo Family.
If this is an incorrect understanding on part , and the Foundation
will continue to refer to the Sosa House as the "The John Charles
Fremont House", please advise me accordingly. If the Sosa names
does not appear in the logo and letterhead, I object to the use
of the Fremont name.
Looking forward to your response to the above inquiries.
