Kah-Nee-Ta Vacation Resort

Warm Springs, Oregon 97761
Dear Sir or Madam,
"Thank you very much for sending me the enclosed confirmation. For many years I have wanted to come and visit your facilities and we are looking forward to our stay with you on April 7-9, 1995.
I am somewhat puzzled by the confirmation however. I have never been to an Indian reservation before and perhaps am not aware of local regulations, codes or customs so I hope you can help me to prepare for our visit.
I noticed that the confirmation has us for 1 room, 2 people, and that the room type is designated NSEX. Many tines when we get away for a weekend I get lucky, but not always. I'm not even sure we will be in the mood but if so, want to make sure we don't violate any rules of your establishment. Could you please explain why we were booked into a no sex room? I don't remember it being a topic of discussion when I made the reservation. If there is an additional charge for a room that allows sex would you please let me know what it is? If we do pay the extra charge and we don't have sex, can we have the extra charge removed from the bill?
Thanks for your prompt attention to this matter. I do so want to be prepared and advise my wife of the rules so that she will behave."
