Alexander Putov, Haifa Countryside

The following letters were written to Alexander Putov from former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mayor of Ottawa, Marion Dewar.

Dear Alexander,

Mila and I extend our genuine gratitude for your generous gift.

We are indeed honoured to have your painting in our new home. It is a significant addition to the decor of 24 Sussex.

Once again, thank you for your kindness.

Yours sincerely,

Brian Mulroney

Dear Mr. Putov:

Thank you so much for your kind invitation to me to view your art when it was exhibited here at City Hall last week, and you generous offer to me to select a piece for my private collection.

I was delighted to have the opportunity to see this exhibit, and to select a piece for display in my office. The work I selected was in red and black, and depicted several human forms. I am looking forward to enjoying it on a daily basis as I work and entertain visitors in the Mayor's office.

Thank you again for your generosity, and for making it possible for me to have such a lovely piece of art in my office.

Yours sincerely,

Marion Dewar
