Bicentennial Guide

An article appeared in your Feb. 8 edition ("Pages from U.S. history are displayed in capital," by Frank Riley) that is causing some confusion among your readers. Although the article is terrific and the publicity appreciated, the very last paragraph is the problem. Your readers are interpreting that last paragraph to mean that the National Commission on the Bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution is publishing guide booklets for attractions, walking tours, bus tours, dining, hotels and shopping. This is not so; we are the organization that prints these materials for Washington visitors.

Consequently, the National Commission is being flooded with mail requests for this information, information they do not have. They forward this mail to us, but the lag time means poor service to your readers in responding to their requests.

Requests should be addressed to us at Washington, D.C. Convention and Visitors Assn., 1575 Eye St. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20005. THOMAS G. MURPHY tourism promotion manager
