Dear Ms. Beard:
I am pleased to inform you that the MARTA Board has agreed to the indefinite loan of the above window to the Northwest Unitarian Church. The loan will provide the present Unitarian congregation of Atlanta a link with earlier members of their Church. The public-at-large will also benefit from the proper display of this lovely window. And it is good to remind ourselves that building for the future must also mean preserving the past.
It is understood that MARTA will accrue no costs of transportation or display of the window. Furthermore, to conform with its enabling legislation, MARTA must retain full rights to the window.
Please coordinate the removal and display of the window with Richard Stranger (586-5025) of my staff.
Alan F. Kiepper
