My dear Don,
You have made your move and have brought a man to his knees. While I may have disagreed with you over devices and methods used, I may also have been an incapable judge since I have such inadequate knowledge of the personalities and inner conflicts involved in ONE’S past. May I suggest that you do not fail to be charitable to Dorr in your time of supremacy since he does have to go on living. I am personally interested in whether you would move back to Venice Blvd. since there is so much of my investment left in that building. What demands and conditions would be necessary first before you would feel right about it? If Dorr resigned from the Board and from Corporate membership, would this satisfy? Or, would it be necessary to reorganize ONE all over again?
I am now interested in learning whether Don Slater’s ship will be any different in ways of admonition, permissibility, charity, and general conduct over that of the other regime. Weeks ago I was promised a copy of a letter Judge Shirley M. Hufstedler wrote me at ONE’S headquarters. Yet, to this day I have not received it. I believe time will bear me out that I did no ill or hurt to ONE by communicating to this Judge as I did. This point I will argue later. Right now, Don, I would like to ask you directly for a copy of Judge Hufstedler’s letter addressed to me, so that I may be made aware of just exactly what she said.
I wish you to know also that I have never been interested in taking sides except as necessary, but rather, I am only concerned that ONE should move forward to help others. To this progress I am devoted and am willing to spend my efforts when called upon to do so.
