ALS, one page, lightly-lined both sides, 8.5 x 11, no date but postmarked July 18, 1983. Written from St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, a letter to Edith Munson, in full: “Thanks for your letter. You asked me a lot of questions, and I’ll try to answer some of them. I don’t have any photos of myself but I’d like to see one of you. 1) The people here treat me okay. I receive lots of therapy from doctors and spend my spare time watching T.V., listening to music, playing my guitar and reading. 2) Yes, I feel like a celebrity. 3) Yes, I like punk rock but I like the Beatles most of all. 4) I still think about Jodie but don’t write to her. 5) I like the Kennedy’s 6) No I don’t compare myself to Oswald or Ray 7) I like Hill Street Blues, 60 Minutes. Now Edith, you need to answer some questions for me. Tell me about yourself. We can become pen pals and I won’t take so long to answer your next letter.” In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed in Hinkley’s hand, signing his last name, “Hinkley,” in the return address area.
