1) Attesting to the CCRD [The following is a typewritten transcript of the handwritten attest to Clear Certainty Rundown (CCRD) written by Lisa McPherson.]  Lisa McPherson CCRD [There appear to be several sets of initials on the page at this point.] There are no words adequate! I am so full of life I am overwhelmed at the joy of it all! It has been a long tough haul and worth every single thing I've had to go through. I could not have made it without all my friends and of course LRH. I have never been happier in my life and for now that will have to suffice for my lack of words. Now, I understand!["understand" is underlined five times.] WOW!

I went into my office to begin working and wasn't very comfortable. I was looking at what had changed since I attested but could spot nothing. Then Becky called to have me do my Sunshine R/D. I came right over and after completing, I must say MAN - WAS THIS THE CORRECT ACTION!! [emphasis in original] It really put my feet on the ground strong[?]. I am now ready to move forward!

[This is a copy of a typewritten document which appears to be incomplete.]  My name is Lisa McPherson, I'm from Texas and I'm Clear! Being Clear is more exciting than anything I've ever experienced. I am so thrilled about life and living I can hardly stand it! It was a pretty interesting trip though, I now have comlete reality on what a gopher would feel like going through a garden hose! I have always had what I considered a fairly easy time going up the Bridge, I never experienced any trouble particularly case wise until just recently, before I attested. In fact, the biggest problem I encountered just this year was after attesting to L-12 I honestly did not believe a case existed for me, I had no reality on what it was at all. I thought to myself, now what am I going to do about this? I am supposed to move up the grade chart but I have no case, how will I ever explain this to my C/S? This should give you some clue of my training level. I was soon disabused of this notion. Many of you in this room were with me and know what I went through the first half of this year. NOt only did I learn that I had a case but I also learned how extremely DANGEROUS it is to NOT BE TRAINED. I have been around Scientology for 13 years. I was on staff for 5 years. I thought I was doing pretty good. My stats have been decent for the majority of my Scientology history. I've never seen much burning necessity to get trained. I've never seen a live sabertooth tiger either, until this year. Not only did I see him, I was in the cage with him for 6 months. He had not been fed for quite sometime and he chewed away at me until I htought I was in for it. This I discovered was my case. Now you'd think with all my "experience" in Scientology that I would know what to do when I got in trouble, right? Wrong. I did fly into the HGC hollering at how I'd somehow landed in a tiger's cage and I couldn'g get out of the cage and he was going to eat me alive and I needed someone to help me FAST but short of that I was clueless as to what was really happening and what I needed to do. My D of P did a standard interview and assured me that it would be handled and I was scheduled for a session. I had a session and was not completely handled. "What's wrong" I thought, I had a session now I still have this tiger eating on me. So I went to my best friend and said, "I'm in trouble, what do I do?" and she told me to go back in session, so I did. Still, after the SECOND session the tiger was still with me. So I went to my back up FSM and told him I'm in trouble what do I do and he told me to go in session. And this went on FOR MONTHS!! I did not know the thing to do was to go back in session UNTIL IT WAS HANDLED. I read the policy on handle with auditing at least 5 times and I still asked, so what do I do?

Perhaps I'm reading too much into it, but it appears this letter was written to cover all her bases at least as far as the "thank yous" are concerned. Only a few days later, Lisa would be frantically working on overt/withholds. [Typewritten letter written by Lisa McPherson to Debra Jean Cook, Captain in Charge, Flag Service Org]  October 21, 1995 [Mr.?] Debi Cook Church of Scientology 210 S Fort Harrison Clearwater, Fl 34616 Dear Mr. Cook, This letter is late! The truth of the matter is that I have a stack of "thank you" letters that have been growing on my desk to people (your staff) who I have wanted to acknowledge for their help over this past year during my journey through the "black hole". I'm sure you have seen many people struggle as they move up the bridge. What I experienced was the worst struggle I have ever encountered this lifteime (and I grew up in a pretty rambunctious neighborhood). THANK GOODNESS i WAS NOT ALONE IN THIS STRUGGLE AT FLAG. I was surrounded by your incredible staff. There are not adequate modifiers to describe the love, care, competence and encouragement I received while I was there. There were some who were closer to me than others, providing me with constant service and relentless care. I tried to name thin in order to send "thank you" notes but I feared I would unintentionally leave someone out and I did not want to take that chance. There were people who were propping me up all over the base, day after day, some whom I'd never personally spoken to but whenI would see them I would feel their care and attention for me. It is because of the group that exists at Flag, and how very close you work together as a team that helped to pull me through. This letter is extended to each and every staff member THANK YOU ALL FOR HELPING TO SAVE MY LIFE! I want you all to know that I am in [my?]self. I know one thing from all this that will protect me and keep me from the black hole again: If we only [DO?] JUST EXACTLY what LRH has written and NOTHING ELSE it will all come out all right. Being a professional Scientologist carries a huge responsibility as all staff posts do. I intend to do all I an to help clear this planet. Thank you for contributing to me and for pushing me through to a done. I will do this with others now I promise you! I LOVE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU VERY VERY MUCH!
