Dear Sir:

On February 13, 1973, my mother, [BLACKED OUT] wrote you a disturbed letter concerning my involvement in the Church of Scientology. As I feel partially responsible for the letter, I am writing to inform you of the erroneous nature of her letter, and to give you the correct information.

First of all, the true source of lies contained in the letter was not my mother but a mutual "friend" by the name of [BLACKED OUT] maliciously plotted to cause a schism between my mother and myself by spreading unfounded rumors about my mental state and my involvement in Scientology. I am attaching a letter that [BLACKED OUT] wrote me in April of 1974 in an attempt to make up the damage he had done. Unfortunately, my mother is still feeling the effects caused by [BLACKED OUT] vicious plotting and frequently experiences staes of extreme depression.

On the brighter side, I am pleased to report that I am still a member of the Church of Scientology and, in spite of that enturbulated period of my life, I am becoming a much saner, more aware person. My mother's fears that through Scientology I would loose [sic] a measure of my self-determinism are unfounded. Contrariwise, through Scientology's help, I find myself growing in responsibility, desirous for the first time in my life to make this world a better place.

I am sorry for any concern that my mother may have caused you regarding my involvement in Scientology but please understand that her usual good-natured self was overwhelmed by the ruthlessness of [BLACKED OUT]

If you would like me to clarify further my involvement in the Church of Scientology, please feel free to write me at the above address.

Very truly yours,
