Reference is made to a meeting on December 20, 1978, in my office in
regards to the status of the above identified project. It was agreed
that we have no other alternative but to cancel this proposal due to
the decision that title companies will not issue title insurance with-
out the "Indian Claims" exception in their policies. It is with regret
that this decision had to be made, but as explained to you, these funds
are from the 1974 allocation and we have been directed to cancel these
contracts unless we can expect an immediate construction start.

We would like to express our appreciation for your cooperation in this
matter and you may rest assured that when the "Indian" title problem
has been resolved, every consideration will be given to your housing
needs in the Rock Hill area.

If you have any questions in regards to this matter, please contact
our Multifamily Housing Representative, Ottis J. Smith, 765-5628 or
