The Presiding Judge
Los Angeles County Superior Court
Los Angeles, Calif.
It has come to my attention that in a legal proceeding in Los Angeles Superior
Court, many of my personal letters, manuscripts, military and other historical
records concerning me or alleged to concern me have been impounded by the court
due to a question of rightful ownership.
Some years ago I loaned to the Church of Scientology many of my personal
and entrusted them with the safe custody of these. Many documents were held by
me but due to the
Superior Court -2-
fact that my writing and research over the past several years has precluded
my establishment of any permanent residence, I was too short of space in my
to retain them and entrusted my personal papers and such to the Church of
for safekeeping and storage.
I hope I have set the record straight and would sincerely appreciate your
in assuring that my belongings are returned to the church or their legal
