Approved F$ lease 2005/07/20: CIA-RDP81 R00 000100080015-8 October 5, 1957 25X1 5X1 Your interesting letter of October 1 was well received and appre- ciated. Although I cannot completely agree with your feelings on the subject, I nontheless respect your opinion. and wish to thank you for taking the time to answer. It was refreshing to receive a negative letter that evidenced clear and sound thinking. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for some seven or eight-odd letters from scientists who, although thinking much the same as you, have shown sarcasm and ridicule in expressing themselves. This, I think, is not in line with good scientific thought.. Whether or not I can use your opinions in the book remains for the publisher to decide. As I stated in my previous letter, the book's purpose is to present a legitimate case for the UFO. Personally, I would like to include a chapter containing the statements of men like you who believe UFOs are natural phenomena or conventional objects (although it would be a shame to put your statements in with those of men less scientific in their approach) in order to be fair, but I have reason to think the publisher might find such a chapter detracting to the theme of the book. I hesitate to contac above reason: from my notes, existence of UFOs. re. the It wou interest me to know with what USAF project you were associated; Again, my thanks, and best wishes. Yours very truly, 5X1 C 0 P Y 25X1 25X1 Approved For Release 2005/07/20 : CIA-RDP81 R00560R000100080015-8 ^ UNCLASSIFI ,proverLNOERNAg 2005/07/20 : CIA-RDW1RRg98 W TOU080015-8 ^ SECRET TOUTING AND RECORD SHEET SUBJECT: (Optional) FROM: NO.
