FROM THE FILES OF THE FBI 215
December 11, 1968
Honorable Edwin D. Eshleman
House of Representatives
My dear Congressman:
I have received your letter of December 6th concerning the Hubbard
Scientology Organization in New York.
While I would very much like to be of assistance, the FBI has not
investigated this organization and therefore, I cannot make the type of
evaluation you requested.
With regard to any legislation which may be desired, it has always been my
policy to refrain from injecting the FBI or myself into matters relating
to this subject. Within the Department of Justice, it is the function of
the Attorney General to determine the desirability of legislation.

Concerning the Hubbard Scientology Organization in New York."
