Reurlet May 22 1953 requesting information from Bufiles concerning captioned organization.
The stated purpose of the Foundation is to “study and conduct research in the field of the human mind and of human thought in action” through the medium of “dianetics,” which may be likened to psychotherapy with certain differences as to method and concept. In this connection, in March, 1951, the Board of Medical Examiners of the Department of Law and Public Safety, State of New Jersey, was taking to trial in the Union County District Court, Elizabeth, New Jersey, a case against the Foundation. The basis for the case was that the Foundation allegedly conducted a school teaching a branch of medicine and surgery without a license.

I, Sara Northrup Hubbard, do hereby state that the things I have said about L. Ron Hubbard in courts and the public prints have been grossly exaggerated or entirely false.
I have not at any time believed otherwise than that L. Ron Hubbard was a fine and brilliant man.
I make this statement of my own free will for I have begun to realize that what I have done may have injured the science of dianetics, which in my studied opinion may be the only hope of sanity in future generations.
I was under enormous stress and my advisers insisted it was necessary for me to carry through an action I have done.
There is no other reason for this statement than my own wish to make atonement for the damage I may have done. In the future I wish to lead a quiet and orderly existence with my little girl far away from the enturbulating influences which have ruined my marriage.
