NORTH AMERICAN MENTOR MAGAZINE Fennimore Wisconsin 53809

December 12, 1975

Sri Chinmoy c/o David I. Gershon 275 West 22d Street New York New York 10011

Dear Sri Chinmoy:

I am pleased to present to you this cash award of $50 for your painting of January 28, 1975, signed C.K.G. (as shown on page 2 of your brochure on Fountain-Art).

It is my intention to use this painting on the front cover of the Winter 1976 issue of the North American Mentor Magazine. I would be grateful to you if you could provide me with the original negatives as used in your brochure, as these negatives would reproduce much nicer and much clearer than if I have to make them direct from the copy which you submitted.

Many publishers of free lance work by artists and writers consider these awards favorably when they are considering work for publication. You, too, might find it advantageous to list this award among your publication credits as well as in future professional biographical listings.

I hope that you will enter more of your work in our 1976 contests.

Congratulations to you.

Very sincerely

John Westburg, Ph.D. Editor
