Dear Mr Summers,

I am in charge of cultural affairs ... and your ... contribution to Japan 2001 was most appreciated.

Your book about Haiku "Parade of Life" is very impressive.

Your information about the haiku teaching cards game is ... very much appealing ... and I hope you could hold a demonstration at the most convenient venue.

If you have any further queries, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Was this book out of workshops that you undertook Alan? If so what was the method etc - did you use Japanese pictures? Denniss
