Dear Mrs. Minton:

I write to you directly because I have asked Bob to allow us to meet together to
discuss the current situation, but he has declined.

I am certain you are unaware of the real activities and nature of the people Bob
is involved with, and I do not believe you would want your family engaged in
these matters if you knew the character of these people or their agenda with
respect to the "Minton money."

While Bob claims that the Church has sought to upset his family, in truth it is
his activities that are the source of the turmoil that now surrounds his life
and yours. It comes about as a result of his relationship with a group of
morally bankrupt individuals who are taking money from him while they are
engaged in unethical and even criminal activities.

Stacy Young is the center of much of the harm that is being caused. She has a
history of engaging in illicit relationships, Bob is not the first to be lured
into her web.  While Bob denies that this relationship exists, however, I have
documentary evidence that on July 24 and 25, 1998, Bob and Stacy are at your
home in New Hampshire together. Their affair is alive and well and the
manipulation and deceit continues.

Your husband, so far as we know, has spent almost $2 million dollars - at least
funding Vaughn and Stacy Young (a house and various payments); Lawrence
Wollersheim (to the tune of over $500,000); Ken Dandar ($250,000); Arnie Lerma
($60,000); Keith Henson ($25,000); Grady Ward ($60,000); Dennis Erlich ($5,000);
and Jessie Prince (reportedly $100,000). There may be more.

Courts have found several of this group of low-lifes guilty of violating the
Church's rights and yet Bob gives them money to continue. A couple of them are
wife abusers and child molesters. None are fit to be in the presence of you or
your children,  yet Bob is playing Santa Claus to them with your money. Bob's
irresponsible, if not outright malicious acts, are damaging my church and
individual Scientologists as well as you and your children. I believe a
face-to-face meeting between us would be helpful.

This is a serious matter. What is occurring is causing a great deal of damage.
If you were aware of all the facts, I am sure you would not support what is

You can contact me at 213-960-3500 or 213-960-3508 (fax). I look forward to
hearing from you.
