Description: (1928-1998) Assassin of Martin Luther King whom he killed in Memphis in 1968. T.L.S. 'James', 1p. 4to., [n.p., Bushy Mountain State Penitentiary], Oct. 21, 1980, to his wife Anna Sandhu Ray whom he married in jail in 1978. In part: 'What we are going to have to do is file the pardon application...we will know before long if we ever get it sent to Nashville...you should give a lot of consideration about what you want to do if the board turns me down...worrying about your unhappiness just makes it worse for me. If I can't get out legally then I want to do whatever is best for you...I love you and I really think we have a good chance of being together...' Fine. Sold with newspaper clipping likely enclosed by Ray.
