A nice letter from the exhibit specialist at the Abraham Lincoln Museum:
Good Morning Ray,

We received the copies of your videos and would like to commend you on both of them.  They are great!!! 

With your permission, we would like to use the shorter one in its entirety.  Our plan is to display it in a dedicated theater adjacent to the exhibit.
