(b. 1944) A long-time member of the Manson Family and a close friend of Lynette 'Squeaky' Fromme. Good was in jail with Mary Brunner for attempting to use stolen credit cards when the Tate/La Bianca murders took place but was arrested at Spahn Ranch during the August 16th raid. In 1975 Good was sentenced to 15 years for sending death threats and was paroled in 1985. A.L.S. 'Blue', 4pp. 8vo., [n.p., n.d.], to Charles Manson. In part: '...The director of the Eastern Region of the Bureau of Prisons, the assistant director in D.C., and the Warden have concurred that we can unite. So if there is any question there just tell them what I said...I went to the Warden's office. 3 men were standing there talking, Warden Neagle, and J.D Williams left, and Mr. G. asked me to sit down. I grumbled about Red getting another 1.5 years in control unit, then he told me they have decided to let us resume correspondence. That it was a privilege, and our mail would be clearly censored. I said fine. Great wonderful! He said it would be censored for security not for content. I told him security wasn't a problem cause I didn’t want out until we all got a fair trial...He said a new trial was a matter for the judiciary. I said it had gone way beyond that, then I proceeded to tell him about the T.V. documentary 'Death of a Princess' while he looked at me like I was some kind of nut. I prefaced my recounting of the story by saying that all the pressures we have been under have been a result of media bias and media irresponsibility...Then I told him how furious Saudi Arabia is at Britain and the U.S. for showing Death of a Princess because it shows Islam in a false way...U.S. might get cut off from all that Saudi Arabian oil which could lead to worse things...There was a panel discussion with 2 Arabs and some professors...one said something like 'You can’t understand Arab society by this film just as you can’t understand American society by the Charles Manson case.' The first page is written on stationery decorated with flowers. Fine condition. 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'.
