RAY (James Earl, 1928-1998, American Felon convicted of killing Martin Luther King in 1968)

Fine Typed Letter Signed from Prison to Nick Bougas thanking him for his suggestions and saying that "The publisher just had 1000 copies run off in the 1st edition, and we are now in the process of printing a revised edition. I may have mentioned it earlier but the guy who edited the book left the country apparently to avoid a misdemeanor tax conviction -- he is connected to an organisation that lobbies against the fed. tax laws. Anyway he had most of the book material in a computer which the others in the office don't have access to. So the next edition will take a little more work than usual. In addition we are adding some updated material in the 2nd & toning down certain passages ... When the 2nd edition is printed I will let you know about sending 12 or whatever copies ... The picture is enclosed. The sketch looks ok. Anna is an artist. She used to be a courtroom artist. I'll send you the labels or a book plate when I hear about the next edition. I doubt if I could actually sign ...", 1 side 4to., with original envelope stamped "The writer of this letter is a resident of a penal Institution", Petros, TN 37845, 3rd June
