Mr. Alfredo Rodriguez Consulting Geologist 5845 Pentz Road Paradise, California 95969
Many thanks for your prompt response in preparing budget estimates for a two-year project under a Mexicanized company.
I judge from your letter that probably the most practical approach to securing a large concession in Mexico can best be negotiated by working with the Mexican government officials.
Will you please send us the names and titles of the two or three principle officials in the government with whom we might consider opening negotiations. Naturally, I assume that we would not begin with the president or one of his cabinet members. On the other hand, you might recommend that we open conversations with the Minister of Development or the Ministry of non-Renew-able Resources.
Am I correct in guessing that one of the government ministries might prove advantageous in recommending the names of reliable associates.
Again, many thanks for your speedy budget preparation. We are presently engaged in typing and editing for presentation at a later date.
With all of the best,
Weston Bourret Vice President
