Dear Scott

Your pic with the Burmese girl in Bagan is the greatest I have even seen among the pics of girls with thanaka.

I am a Burmese, working in Malaysia. I am writing an article about
thanaka (natural make-up) for our company (Texchem) magazine, internally circulated for company staffs only.

I'd greatly appreciate if you can let me use the photo of the girl with thanaka for this article. I will acknowledge your name.

Please reply me at your earliest convenience as the deadline for article is just in few days.

Thank you so much.
