Dear Mather Smith,

I’m the editor-in-chief of an architectural magazine named Buildings Today. I am presently reviewing articles for next month’s publication. One article I am reviewing has a quotation from one of your books. If you will give us permission to include your quotation, it will start from the second paragraph on page 16 with the words: “Some architectural works are considered as political symbols…” up to the third paragraph on page 18 that ends with the words “…but still, others opt for people-friendly designs.”

Attached is a photocopy of the aforementioned article, which we will be publishing once we receive your permission to print your quotation. We are hoping to have your response by March 15. I will be more than willing to mail one copy of the magazine where your quotation appears.

I am hoping to hear from you very soon.

Sincerely,
Amaia
