Subject: RE: Sutton book


Hi Angela,

I, too, was surprised by the reply from McGraw-Hill. But a lot of
time has passed since we first talked about it. The person who replied is
Nicole Rajnauth, who works in the Permissions Dept of McGraw-Hill
Education. If you want to see a fax of the letter I can send it to
you. It has been marked up a bit though, from when I called the US
Copyright Office. I'm going to keep this letter on file...
