Honorable Louis B. Nichols
Federal Bureau of Investigation.
I am in receipt of a letter from [BLACKED OUT] of Traverse City,
Michigan, which reads:
"I am deeply concerned about some literature. I confess I can
generally do some investigating and find out what I wish to know
but this time I am compelled to seek some assistance. Who publishes
"HANDBOOK FOR PRECLEARS" by L Ron Hubbard and who is this man
"Hubbard". They run rather than the name of the publishers the
"Manufactured in the U.S.A.
"I shall appreciate greatly an analysis of this literature
Frankly I don't like the trend of it and some of my parishioners
I will appreciate your advising me if you have any information
in regard to the foregoing.
With best wishes and kind personal regards,
[signed] Homer Ferguson
