Dear Mr. Mays,

I am a new writer and the granddaughter of Lorenzo "Piper" Davis. I would like to ask if you would write the Forward to my book about my grandfather. I can be reached via the email information provided above or my home phone in Orlando, Florida at 407 678-4461. I wish you well and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you,

Donna Faye Davis-Young
