Dear Mr. McKenzie:
Thank you for your recent request for my endorsement of your campaign for
United States Senator. I am honored that you believe my name could be

Privately, of course, I allow myself more leeway. I have always been
impressed by your stand on the issues, particularly your support of the
Equal Rights Amendment. I wish you all the best in your campaign and am
enclosing a personal contribution of $100.
Agnes Cafiero, M.D.
