Re: Transmission of Armstrong-Miscavige letter

Dear Mr. Miscavige:

     A little more than a fortnight ago my friend and
neighbor Gerry Armstrong sent to me a letter dated March
6, 1997 and addressed to you, with a request that I
forward it to you with or without adding my own comments,
as I should so choose, and as an attorney working in his
interests.

     In the meantime, much of my available time has been
devoted to determining whether I should, at this time,
make any personal observations prompted by my reading and
rereading — against related, researched facts and
conclusions independently reached by me — of the subject
Armstrong-Miscavige communication.

     My decision is uncomplex. I shall refrain at this
time from adding any of my own observations, but two: I
trust that you will perceive Gerry's letter to be of
signal, even of watershed, importance and that you will
proceed to act accordingly. And, it is most devoutly
hoped that, from your most high position, you and your
key associates will react and respond responsibly and
constructively to the end, in Gerry's words and with his
help, that those within and without the protracted
Scientology-Armstrong history of events will "achieve a
sane and lasting peace."

     In the fourth full paragraph of Mr. Armstrong's
March 6, 1997 letter we find these words: "If you wish

Telephone (702) 782- 2302 * Fax (702) 782-8362
2245-B Meridian Boulevard (at Airport Road) * P.O. Box 98 * Minden, Nevada 89423-0098

 

Mr. David Miscavige

to take advantage of this opportunity please immediately
communicate your willingness to meet with me by advising
my attorney who will forward this letter to you." I, of
course, am that attorney.

     On the foregoing but with a slight modification
(underlined) "If you wish to take advantage of this
opportunity, or if you do not, please immediately
communicate your willingness or unwillingness to meet with
me by advising my attorney who will forward this letter
to you."

     I shall construe "immediately" to embrace seven (7)
calendar days from the date of receipt in your office of
this (Abbott) letter with its enclosed (Armstrong)
letter, as evidenced by an executed return receipt.

     I look forward to a timely and meaningful response.

 

Yours constructively and professionally,

[signed] George W. Abbott
