[Letter from Alan Jabbour to John Turner, March 15, 1983]
THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS

AMERICAN FOLKLIFE CENTER
Dear Mr. Turner:
Thank you very much for that wonderful recording session at the Omaha Tribal Administration Building while I was visiting Macy. You were very kind to give so much time to us and I learned a lot about the cylinder recordings by listening to your translations, comments, and advice about them.
Enclosed are two cassette tapes which are copies of the tapes I made of you. I hope you can play them and listen to it—though you already know what the tape teaches.
We are pleased to have these tapes at the Library of Congress, where they become part of our permanent collections i?cumenting the history of all the cultures in America. Thank you again for this generous contribution. And I hope a way will be found to bring you to Washington someday.
Mr. John Turner
