Dear Mr. Linowes:

I congratulate you on the recent honors bestowed on you and your brothers by the Washington Institute for Jewish Leadership and Values, as reported in the Thursday June 4, 1998 issue of The Washington Post.

I am sending along on the enclosed computer disc a copy of a manuscript I have been working on that may be of interest to you as an individual actively involved in matters of Jewish interest as well as an individual honored by the Folger Shakespeare Library. The manuscript is a somewhat unusual creative piece that is written entirely in the form of quotations, and is on the borderline between a kind of novel and a play. You don't have to return the disc.

I used to be employed at the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld in the capacity of paralegal. Coincidentally, the head of the paralegal program at Akin Gump during my tenure was one of your former real estate partners, Earl L. Segal, Esq. It was a genuine pleasure to work with Mr. Segal.

And, of course, one of your brothers, Ambassador Sol Linowitz, served in the Carter Administration with Akin Gump partner Robert S. Strauss, Esq.

Once again, congratulations!


Gary Freedman
