November 23, 1999 Mr. Edward Garvey Minnesota Public Utilities Commission 121 7th Place East., Suite 350 St. Paul, MN 55101-2147 Dear Mr. Garvey:

Ralph Hilgendorf and I appreciate all forty-five minutes you devoted to meeting with us today to receive our declaration of support for the Crees of Manitoba. It was good to hear from you that your decision-making process does include the factor of the "public desire." We hope our talk today, accompanied by the signatures of forty-three individuals in our Quaker community at Twin Cities Friends Meeting who endorse the declaration of support, will prove to be a significant witness about the public desire of Minnesotans to disengage from our current involvement in the hydroelectric holocaust in Manitoba.
