Subject: Your mail has been received
During the past two months, the Vice President has been
thrilled to receive electronic mail from people across America
and from around the world via the Internet. The President is
committed to integrating this new medium into the White House and
we have completed stage one of the experiment -- getting
connected. It is now time for stage two, and I want to let you
know what we are planning.
Since June 1, 1993, the White House has received more than
60,000 electronic messages. The messages have ranged from
opinions on national and world events to mail for Socks. Your
interest has been greatly appreciated.
The second phase of our electronic mail project is about to
begin. White House documents will be available on line, thus
increasing the speed with which you can access information
directly from the White House.
We also plan to make available speeches, answers to
frequently asked questions, and position papers on current
issues. At your leisure, you will be able to browse through this
electronic library and search for subjects that relate to your

select services, but with implementation of this second phase,
they will be available from one source to anyone who desires the
We are all excited about the progress that has been made
with this historic project. I know the Vice President looks
forward to a continued electronic dialogue with you, even though
we are unable at this time to fully respond to your messages.
Your continued support is appreciated, and I thank you for your
patience as together we move ahead with this experiment.
Director of Vice Presidential
