FROM THE FILES OF THE FBI 219
March 3, 1969
Mr. J. Edgar Hoover
Dear Mr. Hoover:
Recently you had a program on television about Scientology. I am very
interested in anything concerning this Cult, and nothing would make me
happier than to hear that all the people who have anything to do with this
have been arrested (and convicted).
My daughter was talked into visiting this organization, and being easily
lead [sic], she joined. Shortly afterward she left home and took her 4
year old child. The child wasn't satisfied to stay away from what she
considered home as she had lived with us all her life. My daughter sent
the child back to us but said she could not help support her. We (my
husband and I) had already grieved ourselves sick over this matter and was
more than glad to have our grandchild back. Over a year has passed and we
have constantly prayed and hoped that our daughter would return also.
Instead, she went to Los Angeles, Calif. to further her knowledge of this
Cult. She seems completely brain-washed.
Is there anything the F.B.I. can do to bring back one person? If so, I'd
be most happy to co-operate in any way necessary. I only want to save my
child, if it isn't too late. I would also like to help save others from
getting mixed up in this horrible organization.
Enclosed are clippings from our newspaper. Months ago I turned coppies
[sic] of these clippings and several magazine articles along with odd
pieces of mail that were sent to my daughter, over to the District
Attorneys [sic] office, but nothing has been done.
Any information you can furnish that would be of benefit in this situation
would be most grateful.
