Letter of appreciation for presentation

This letter was sent to Dr. James Hodges in appreciation for a presentation on George Washington he gave to a Rotary Club in November 2010:

Captain Don [Last Name]
USN Ret. 
Kingston, Washington Rotary Club
Dear Jim, 
Your presentation yesterday was excellent, and well received by all hands. We very much appreciate your willingness to come across the water and share this (very timely) message with us.  What a shame our politicians can't have this message force-fed en masse.  Maybe we could clean up "the best government money can buy" just a little.  
I don't remember who it was who said that Democracy could only work until the elected representatives discover that they can bribe the electorate with their own money.  It's clear they have made that discovery, and we're on a slippery slope, unless we can muster the ethical backbone to insist on NOT being bribed.  I see that as unlikely.
Thanks again for a most inspirational luncheon.  It was a pleasure getting to know you.  I'll look forward to repeating the experience in the near future.
Meanwhile: I've put Poulsbo on notice that they might want to book you in, and will draft a letter for our Prez to sign, making our appreciation a tad more concrete.
Best regards,
