(1934-2017) Drifter whose 'family' committed the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders in 1969. A.L.S. ‘Riff Raff', 12pp., large 4to., [n.p., n.d.]. In part: ‘...how can I put your brain in check or take it out of gear when the book brains news and TVs have checkmated your brain...If I tell you true you are not gonna like it...understand – I would need to relive your life and or live it for you because in truth what the hell do you understand...you would be 99 years old and would never git all the ones that fuck up the worlds air, water, earth life systems and food chains, animals, bugs, bees, birds, butterfly and LIFE...you're raised and programmed to need want and keep someone to back down or a scapegoat to make you feel bigger[sic], smarter, and gooder...Do I look back on the murders – What murders – The murders of the Indians...the ones that Jenges Kahn did...or the people who murder 1000 of people for a bank account...or destroy a country to keep up the oil market...I was reformed in 1967...In my world it would be foolish to do anything to make guilt...How would a person find out how guilt feels – is it in the knees or the feet that you feel it...30 years in cages telling me to feel guilt for you...your government is a reflection of its people so far the people are gone in some Hollywood movie selling image...your brain is where the universe is...you would need the mind of a child to see yourself – you don't learn you remember. You know inside you that's all you are and if you don't know your not even a you...you know when you're truthful and you know when you love and you know when you're right and when you do know you won't need o play over me with questions that any woman spinning out of er head would ask...I took cars and ran away from what's called home, took a check out of a mailbox and I DIDN'T KILL no one and didn't make no one do anything and I BROKE NO LAW...Here is a thought – a lot of good people were put to death by a bad government years ago – it took 1000's of years to wright about it and that government fell – 1000's of more years it was all rewritten but it took more 100's of years for millions of people to learn to read it and yet 100's of more years before 100's of millions of people could read it...The kids of TODAY are your last chance to save the earth, your word, but how can they...' Signed at the conclusion adding his characteristic reverse swastika. Mailing folds, else fine. From the estate of Manson's biographer NUEL (MELTON) EMMONS (1927-2002), who had once been jailed with and later befriended Manson. He co-wrote 'Manson in His Own Words'.
