Dear Mr. Stanger:

This letter is to convey to you our proposal for a permanent display In our church building of the stained glass windows from the now demolished Abbey Restaurant.

As you know, the windows commemorate the first Unitarian minister in Atlanta and his wife, and their efforts toward establishing a Unitarian church In our city. We now have four Unitarian societies in the Atlanta area. Each of these groups has encouraged us to display on a permanent basis these commemorative windows in our building. After long study, we discover ours Is the only facility with adequate space.

We would like to display the windows with back lighting along with a plaque indicating their historical significance as well as the generous cooperation we have experienced from you and the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority.

We hope this proposal meets with your approval.
