“Dear Mr. Scott Skinner,
“Because of the ongoing work of the Government of Cambodia to nuture its traditional cultural traditions, such as dance and music and kiteflying, the Government’s Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts has made a particular effort to publish another important book on Khmer kites with the financial assistance of the Drachen Foundation of Seattle, Washingon, U.S.A.
“On behalf of the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts I would like to express to the Drachen Foundation and you the very sincere thanks for your gracious help in financing this project.
“In this connection the Ministry has recently made a gift of 500 Khmer kite books to the Drachen Foundation. These books will also be used for diffusion purposes nationally and internationally.
