FROM THE FILES OF THE FBI #73
[undated, probably circa Jan 1963]
Mr. J. F. Kennedy
President of the United States of America
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Dear Mr. President,
Twice within the past few weeks you have spoken publicly about
the advancing of the human spirit, once at a banquet here in
Washington, and again, to ex-prisoners of Castro, in Miami.
Therefore, I invite your personal attention to last Friday's
raid, by U.S. Marshals, on a legally constituted church
organization, The Founding Church of Scientology, at 1812 19th
Street, N.W., Washington 9, D.C., in violation of the United States
The purpose was to seize an instrument used in our confessional,
and religious literature.
Mr. President, would you greet with equanimity, a loud
interruption, by public servants, sworn to uphold the Constitution,
of your private confessions to your priest? It happened here.
Please help to restore the Constitutional guarantee of religious
freedom by whatever means at your command.
