Dear Sirs and Madam:

We have tried to work with AMR but have been unsuccessful. If AMR doesn't
withdraw its initiatives in Alaska, Colorado, Maine and Washington, D.C.
by Friday, December 12, we will assume that they are not sincere about
working with local patients' groups.  Patients and their advocates in
these states and others will then go public with their concerns that the
AMR initiatives will endanger patients.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
