Dear Sirs,

I have hesitated, to write to you offices for several months; However, I have decided that I must do so, because the information, that I have may be of some value to your research.

Although, the information is several months past due, it may still be of value.

The reason, I have hesitated to contact your offices is because of all the bad publicity that a person seems to get when he does contact you.

Let me state, that I do not wish to receive any public notice and wish to remain anonymous on this matter.

If you have a representative, who will be in this area and who can call on me without much expense to your offices I will be most happy to talk with him.

My regular day off from work is Wednesday and Sundays, please notify me ahead of time.

I have discussed this matter only with two men, and at the time of sighting. One, a prominent manager in our area, and the other my pastor.

I hope that this letter will not be received in any other manner, than that for which it is intended.

Kenneth J. Gulley,
619-So 17th. St.
Nederland, Texas
