Sam Bankman-Fried wants to be helpful to Ray

SBF tried to connect with Ray through the mail with the subject line “Reconnecting.” SBF acknowledged that it had been a while since they spoke and said that things ended up on the wrong foot.

“I would really love to reconnect and see if there’s a way for us to have a constructive relationship, use each other as resources when possible, or at least vet things with each other.”
