(1934 - 2017) Drifter whose 'family' committed the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders in 1969. A.L.S. 'C. Manson' with a reversed swastika added across his name, and 'Manson' twice in the text, 12pp. 4to., Vacaville, Ca., Nov. 15, 1979 to his biographer Nuel 'Mel' Emmons. In part: '...I love Red [Lynette Fromme] & she told one lie & she spent 10 years running to git her own word back - its like a train that dont run on time...I told you the first lie that came between us & I told you the next time. I understand & know what excuses are...you can trick me 10000 times but its still your word...' He goes on to chastise Emmons about money splits, promises he made to fellow inmates he could not fulfill, etc. He continues: '...me is what I must look out for & Im not gonna git in no cross for no money...I'll end up with your wifes fear & your fear up my ass when you see Ive been playing out of that dead head on that cross all my life. We were in the same prison...So far I've faced the point of death 4 times because you didnt do what you said...Im carrying too much fear far too much & my minds brain cant hold that balance...' Much more. Very good, with transmittal envelope. 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'.
