Dear Lynda Thompson,

I am pleased to report that negotiations with Southwest
Baptist University
and the Missouri Baptist Convention

have progressed.

Although I anticipate that my business with Southwest
Baptist University will be concluded by the first week
of April, I have asked that any agreement be reviewed
and approved by the full Missouri Baptist Convention
Board of Trustees
as they meet for their Spring meeting
on April 9-10, 2001.

As a portion of my contention with SBU deals directly
with the collaboration of Southwest Baptist University
officials and associates with the Empire Electric Company,

I would ask that if you should have any further inquiries
about my electrical account before the April 9-10 MBC
meeting please direct those inquiries to the following

Dr. C. Pat Taylor, Southwest Baptist University President:

   Dr. C. Pat Taylor
    Southwest Baptist University
   1601 South Springfield Avenue
   Bolivar, MO 65613

   Telephone: 1-(417)-326-1501
   SBU Switchboard Telephone: 1-(417)-326-5281
   SBU Admissions 800 Number: 1-(800)-526-5859

Or the advisor to the SBU President, Dr. Bill Little.

The Board of Trustees of Southwest Baptist University:

   Correspondence to the SBU Trustees should be directed
   to Dr. C. Pat Taylor, President of Southwest Baptist
   University (contact information given above), who
   will convey your inquiries to the SBU Trustees.

Dr. Ray Leininger, current SBU Trustee and former member
of the Executive Committee of the Missouri Baptist Convention,
and pastor of First Baptist Church of Bolivar:

   Pastor Ray Leininger
   First Baptist Church
   316 North Main Avenue
  Bolivar, MO 65613

   Church Office Phone: (417)-326-2431
   Church Fax: (417)-326-4706

Mr. Jim Hill, the executive director of the Missouri Baptist Convention:

   Jim Hill, MBC Executive Director
   Missouri Baptist Convention
   400 E. High Street
   Jefferson City, MO 65101

   Telephone: 573-635-7931
   Toll Free: 1-800-736-6227
   Fax: 573-659-7436

The Board of Trustees of the Missouri Baptist Convention:

   Correspondence to the MBC Trustees should be directed
   to Mr. Jim Hill, the executive director of the Missouri
   Baptist Convention (contact information given above),

   who will convey your inquiries to the MBC Trustees.

   If, for some reason, you must contact me before mid-April,
   please send your correspondence by certified mail. In

   the last several months, I have experienced a resurgence
    of delayed, opened, and stolen mail.

I will keep you apprised of any changes or adjustments
this scheduling.

Should these negotiations prove successful, I expect
that I will be leaving quickly (most probably in either
April or May) to begin the long-overdue treatment for
pesticide and solvent poisoning, and, hopefully, begin

a new life elsewhere.

I will, at that time, send you written confirmation in
order to formally close my electrical account and
transfer it into my landlord's name.

My landlords have expressed an interest in converting
this house into a stately Bed and Breakfast Inn.

I sincerely hope this is so.

Since my injuries at Southwest Baptist University,
my landlords have allowed me to stay in this home
though I have thus far been able to make only
token rental payments.

Under my landlords' gentle and generous care of this
house, I can
already envision this Christmas Holiday
this grand, rambling mansion will be filled
with guests, festivities, feasts, the laughter of family,
and children, and the sparkling of Christmas
to replace the hunger, privation, isolation, pain,
suffering, and darkness which this house has silently
witnessed for so many long years.

My Sincerest Regards and Wishes for a Happy Spring,

Marie Ann O'Hara
