Dear Mr. President.

First, I would like to introduce myself. I am Elvis Presley and admire you and have
great respect for your office. I talked to Vice President Agnew in Palm Springs three
weeks ago and expressed my concern for our country. The drug culture, the hippie
elements, the SDS, Black Panthers, etc. do NOT consider me as their enemy or as they
call it The Establishment. I call it America and I love it. Sir, I can and will be of any
service that I can to help The Country out. I have no concern or Motives other than
helping the country out.

So I wish not to be given a title or an appointed position. I can and will do more good if
I were made a Federal Agent at Large and I will help out by doing it my way through
my communications with people of all ages. First and foremost, I am an entertainer, but
all I need is the Federal credentials. I am on this plane with Senator George Murphy and
we have been discussing the problems that our country is faced with.

Sir, I am staying at the Washington Hotel, Room 505-506-507. I have two men who
work with me by the name of Jerry Schilling and Sonny West. I am registered under
the name of Jon Burrows. I will be here for as long as it takes to get the credentials of a
Federal Agent. I have done an in-depth study of drug abuse and Communist
brainwashing techniques and I am right in the middle of the whole thing where I can
and will do the most good.

I am Glad to help just so long as it is kept very Private. You can have your staff or
whomever call me anytime today, tonight, or tomorrow. I was nominated this coming
year one of America's Ten Most Outstanding Young Men. That will be in January 18 in
my home town of Memphis, Tennessee. I am sending you the short autobiography
about myself so you can better understand this approach. I would love to meet you just
to say hello if you're not too busy.

Respectfully,
Elvis Presley

P. S. I believe that you, Sir, were one of the Top Ten Outstanding Men of America also.
I have a personal gift for you which I would like to present to you and you can accept
it or I will keep it for you until you can take it.
