I have just read your proposal for the Center for New Words. I am writing to express my strongest support for your project. It is a visionary, groundbreaking endeavor, and I will be honored to be part of it. Please do not hesitate to call me for any task associated with the establishment of the CNW and, once it is functioning, please count on me for any activities that will require my skills and enthusiasm.
