From: Justin Anschutz
I am an artist working in Cape Town, a graduate of the Michaelis School of Fine Art. I would like to ask for your help on an art project which will reach completion and be exhibited in the year 2000.
For the project I plan to collect and display invitations to art exhibitions of all kinds from all over the world between now and February 2000, giving an overall picture of the huge variety of cultural activity in the global village.
If you are able to send me invitations of your work or from your gallery, please put me on your mailing list. If possible, artists should sign the invitation. If you can copy and forward this letter to other artists and institutions that would also be much appreciated. I am hoping to produce a catalogue with information about and photographs of the thousands of invitations I expect to acquire.
My postal address is; Justin Anschutz, All Star Studios, c/o Postnet X2, Box 182,Woodstock, 7915, Cape Town, South Africa. E-mail: email@example.com

Hello. I am very much interested in African textiles. I want to start a clothing business out of my home. I am in an area mostly of African American and see the need to make clothes for the larger woman. I sew very well and have a good imagination for clothes. This business would start out small, but I am sure if I have the right contacts I can make it grow. I look every place for material but it is all the same. Nothing very interesting. Everyone is wearing what they can find at local fabric shops. This is very boring to me. I want to venture out and use textiles that are truely unique. Could you lead me in the right direction? Any help or advice would be much appreciated. I am very sincere in this venture and do have another source to show my clothing after it is made.
Very Truly Yours
