To Thom It May Concern:
This is to certify that I have personally known Mr. L. Ron Hubbard for the past twenty years. I have been associated with him as a boy growing up and observed him closely.
I have found him to be of excellent character, honest, ambitious and always very anxious to improve himself to better enable him to become a more useful citizen.
His specialty is the writing of fiction stories and I understand he has made a very good success in his present profession.
He has also done considerable work in the exploring line and holds two masters licenses in sail and motor vessels. He recently made a survey of British Colombia and Alaska. He has also piloted in the harbors of the Caribbean Sea.
I do not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing the services of a man with his qualifications.
