Your letter of September 4th, with enclosures, was received, and I want you to know how much I appreciate the best wishes you extended.
Document contains following internal FBI Note:
NOTE: Correspondent is not identifiable in Bufiles. His enclosures were two pamphlets distributed by the Academy of Scientology and a brochure and letter relating to [xxx] Mayor of San Diego. The Academy of Scientology, run by L. R0n Hubbard is well-known to the Bureau. Hubbard is the founder and president of the Hubbard Dianetic Research Foundation, Inc. , for the purpose of furthering Hubbard’s theory of Scientology, an alleged science which instills self-confidence and assists individuals in removing mental problems and obtaining human ability. Hubbard has been described as being “hopelessly insane” by his wife in suing for divorce and the “Washington Times Herald” of 4-24-51, in mentioning this divorce proceeding, stated that “competent medical advisors recommended that Hubbard be committed to a private sanitarium for psychiatric observation and treatment of a mental ailment known as paranoid schizophrenia.” (105-55601-1)
