[First Presidency letter to Disney legal executive]
Our grateful appreciation to you and Mr. Disney and your associates for your most gracious consent for us to continue to use the 350 feet of film footage from "The Rites of Spring" [from the Movie Fantasia] for the purpose which we have previously defined, and for the continued full term period of copyright. This is a most generous accommodation, and we assure you that it will be used respectfully and constructively, and that the privilege will not be abused or exceeded.

[LDS First Presidency to Gunther R. Lessing, Disney Productions Legal Department, Nov. 9, 1960 , typed excerpt in Buerger Papers, in Anderson, Devery; The Development of LDS Temple Worship, 1846-2000: A Documentary History, http://amzn.to/TempleWorship]
