(b. 1948) 'Squeaky', a follower of Charles Manson, later attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford, failing to get a shot off when her gun jammed. A.L.S. 'Red', 3pp. 4to., San Diego, 1976, to Charles Manson. In part: '...When you say I wanted to be a bright light and all the children follow I don’t know what that refers to. First I considered the thought I flashed about the legal eyes and have been wondering about the other more that is here. You said something and Blue also brought to me that though but yours was not clear so I've considered and thought and kept doing what I'm doing. On the camera thought, there were a bunch of different people who took pictures and I guess it irritates me because I don’t like to put these things on their official files and I'm here and you ask then get mad for knowing...It was my own decision but then later you acted like I was not right to not be with Bobby [Beausoleil?] then later I thought I wasn’t and that had caused trouble so I opened myself up. I liked to play anyway and thought it was all love and I'm mad because you're mad...Eye took some naked ones of me and Brenda, not many. This German guy who did some of those beautiful ones of Blue, Gold, Gap, and Kitty on the corner took some of me with his two women. I thought id send you some of those. One I liked was from the top of our heads. He took some naked ones too. But he doesn’t show them...I can't send clippings anymore, Hanson got a letter from Jack to Elizabeth.' Accompanied by the original mailing envelope that is signed and addressed by Fromme. From a grouping of Manson's letters in the estate of his biographer NUEL (MELTON) EMMONS (1927-2002), who had once been jailed with and later befriended Manson. He co-wrote 'Manson in His Own Words'.
