Dear Mr. Collier-Wright:

           I am writing in response to a letter dated May 9, 1994 sent
to you by Mike Rinder of the Scientology organization's Office of
Special Affairs. I am the Gerald Armstrong Mr. Rinder accurately
names, but erroneously describes, at page 2 of his letter.

           Please be assured that if your company is sued by
Scientology, and if you call me as a witness, which Mr. Rinder
warns you against doing, your client will not become a party to
any violation of any legal agreement. Nor would I, should I
appear as a witness in any litigation brought by Scientology
against your client or anyone, be in violation of any legal
agreement. By a 1992 partial injunction of the Los Angeles
County Superior Court, upheld on appeal, I am permitted to assist
any entity the organization sues, and I am permitted specifically
by said injunction to "testify[ ] fully and fairly in response to
properly put questions either in deposition, at trial, or in
other legal or arbitration proceedings."

           The " agreement," with which Mr. Rinder is threatening you
and your client, was obtained by the Scientology organization
from my former attorney Michael Flynn by duress. The
organization's attacks on Mr. Flynn, pursuant to its judicially
condemned philosophy and practice of "Fair Game," are well known
in the international media and legal arenas.

           The organization has used the "agreement" to obstruct
justice in dozens of litigations and to frighten its critics,
opposing lawyers and its victims into silence. Yet I believe it
will ultimately be instrumental in bringing the organization's
leaders to justice.

           Mr. Rinder's charge that I posed naked in a newspaper is
unrelated to the reliability of my information. As well as
untrue. I have survived four Scientology lawsuits and more than
55 days of testimony in depositions in a dozen cases and in three
trials, and weathered over twelve years of Fair Game and Black PR
for the very reason that my information is reliable.

           Although my reliability could be viewed as demonstrated by
Scientology's attack thereupon, I also suggest that, if you have
questions regarding my history or credibility, you contact any or
