[Dear Dave, Although we have not met, I have certainly heard of you.]

Letter to David Wiley. The letter says although we have not met, I have certainly heard of you; from Charles Wilhelm and Dave Robinson in particular I have heard of your work and your interests; I am sure Charles has brought you up-to-date on the activities of the Southern Africa Committee. The letter says I am writing you not only in the hope that a fruitful correspondence may begin between us, but also because of a specific project first proposed to me by Dave Robinson ; the project has to do with a film on Zambia. The letter says a very strong supporter and organizer of the Danish anti- apartheid movement is Sven Skovmaul, who is a television producer; I met him in New York when he was meeting Americans interested in the anti- apartheid movement; he is currently raising $16,000 to do a film on Mozambique, and he is quite positive about his ability to raise the needed capital. The letter says just met Bruce Detwiler last night, and had an exciting conversation. [Note: the correct spelling may be Sven Skovmand.]
