Paulette Cooper's Harassment Diary

HARASSMENT DIARY, by Paulette Cooper (1982)
Part 15: Suspicions about L. Ron Hubbard Jr.

My 1997 editorial comments are enclosed in [[double square brackets]]. Also, I have added some paragraph breaks.


My suspicion that Nibs was also involved was strengthened greatly, when, in obtaining letters of all possible suspects for document analysis that summer, I discovered that in his handwritten letters, the same type of errors that appeared in the bomb threats (writing things like "lll", "cant", "a exploding" etc.) appeared repeatedly in his unedited letters (his wife later retyped them for him).

I had assumed that someone was feigning illiteracy but Nibs really was uneducated. Furthermore, that letter to my parents could have been written by Nibs also, especially since he kept seeming to try to reach out to them.(1)

My suspicions about Nibs [[L. Ron Hubbard Jr.]] turned into an obsession that he was involved [[in my frame-up]] in August when he was interviewed by a mutual friend of ours, Dr. Roy Wallis [[author of "The Road To Total Freedom"]].

He seemed to be very honest with Roy, said he was angry at me, but that he didn't like Scientology either. Yet they had pressured him (he told someone else they had blackmailed him) into leaving the anti-Scientology scene, although he insisted that he had never rejoined them.


(1) Oddly enough, in November of 1972, right before the bomb threats were mailed, Nibs wrote my parents a letter stating that I should keep my eyes open and implying that bad things might happen to me. Was he in fact trying to ensure that my parents wouldn't think he was behind what he was about to get behind?
