Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

A delegation from the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee
will be in Washington next Tuesday for appointments
with high officials of Congress about the manipulation of
the gold market. In addition, we have an appointment with
the chief economist of the Senate Banking Committee
and key committee staff members. The document GATA
has prepared, titled "The Gold Banking Derivative Crisis,"
will be presented.

The GATA delegation will include two Harvard guys,
Frank Veneroso of Veneroso Associates and Reg
Howe of www.GoldenSextant.com, as well as GATA
Secretary/Treasurer Chris Powell and me.

BILL MURPHY, Chairman
