All of them, those in power, and those who want the power, would pamper us, if we agreed to overlook their crookedness by wilfully restricting our activities.

Part 6: The Bomb Threat Letters
The night before the main Grand Jury, which was around April, I finally saw the two letters for the first time. They were actually a relief, because they were so foolish and grossly ungrammatical that it was obviously not my style. The first letter was also a very unsubtle attempt to look like me, so that it became immediately obvious that someone was trying to implicate me, either to get me, or send Scientology bomb threats on their own without any risk to themselves by trying to make it look like my doing. 
The first letter started "these damned books they are closing in on me" immediately establishing that the person who wrote that was either someone writing books, or someone with wall-to-wall bookcases in their apartment, which was also true about me. It also said "I hurt — my operation" and this planted the first seeds of suspicion — later to become an obsession — about Nibs (L. Ron Hubbard Jr.) And again there was that wrong reference to me that had appeared in the smear letter to the building "my tongue is swollen."
The second letter, allegedly received Dec. 13th (although it mysteriously never went through the mails, and suspiciously the only fingerprints on the envelope were Meisler's we were later to learn) planted the first seeds of suspicion about my close friend Bob Kaufman, who had also written an anti-scientology book. My lawyers were later to become highly suspicious of him, especially because he had had a nervous breakdown after being in Scientology and had been institutionalized. The letter sounded like him  but this one sounded more like Meisler, because it said that "Hitler - Hubbard - Meisler must be destroyed." (I felt that the only person foolish enough to put Meisler in with Hitler, or with his counterpart, Hubbard, had to be Meisler himself.
