Thought you might like to see what you get when you flame to the Vice 
President.  Similar but less detailed message comes when you flame to 
Clinton.  --lib

Subject: Your mail has been received

Dear Friend:

     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 
interests.  These materials are presently available only through 
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.


                              Bill Mason
                              Director of Vice Presidential
