Subject: Presentation package: Roger Reed "JC Leyendecker"

I sent the text to Mr. Reed to review on January 30.  I called him last Friday and on Monday to see if he had received it, as I'd not heard back.  He said he was very busy and that I should go ahead and publish it.  We agreed that if I had not heard from him by yesterday, that is what we would do.

A very brief bio follows (feel free to reword it if it is to appear in third person, or shortened):

I was born in 1954 and attended Hampshire College. I joined my father Walt Reed (founder of the gallery Illustration House) in 1981 and am now president of the gallery. I have written a number of articles about illustrators and the market for illustration art.
