In part: "...I have so much to tell you...RR - is really a nervous little thing...Re: Death list - he was going to say how he got wind of it...Elf & Bridges & Murphy came to see him...the next part of statement said that another way you theatrically dramatized was to tell some girl that you were upset by the dope, being high all the time on something...This leading to death list & what you meant by it...in his statement he says that you once said to him that you may let him live...my brain has been burning out with fear...I said you raised us as far we'd allowed...When I have a thought of yours I can'tr be harmed...Bob [Beausoleil] wanted a place to sell some of his art work. I wrote him & said if we sold any part of himself I wished it to be redeemable...Blue [Sandra Good] can tell you what she's thinking...She wants to explode..."
