SOME HANDWRITTEN LETTERS BY JESSE FROM 5 YEARS 2000 -2004
Below I am going to display some excerpts from five of Jesse’s letters to me about the writing of the book, and later about the demands and pressure which Hinton and Felix-Johnson were placing on Jesse back during the release of the book and the effects upon him and me afterward. I have gone back and found a letter from each year…2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004 in which Jesse told me something relating to the book and Hinton’s requests and misrepresentations.
I have edited out all private information from these letters. I apologize for the messy appearance, but I NEVER reveal anything of a private nature about Jesse.
I share these in order that you may fully understand the comments which I wrote about Hinton above.
Also, after Hinton and Felix-Johnson did many interviews telling that Elvis was going to “come out in 2002“, many people became very disillusioned in the fact that Jesse is Elvis. They, because of their disillusionment, have waged a war against the truth about Elvis being Jesse ever since. They have also waged a war against Hinton which he has brought upon himself. Their war has also been extended to me even though I had no hand in ever telling anyone that Elvis was going to come out nor in the publishing nor promoting of the book.
I offer the following to set the record straight once and for all about the enormous problems which Hinton caused for Jesse, for me, and for my friendship and communication with Jesse. I asked Jesse over the phone once if what they were saying was true…was he really going to come out? His answer to me was totally direct and honest “Of course not.“
I was calling and leaving long messages for Hinton on his answering machine about what Jesse was telling me…that he was NOT going to come out and the mess they were making of things. I sent Emails to Hinton and Felix-Johnson at their web site telling them that I had letters from Jesse saying that he was not coming out and that if I made them public, it would blow them out of the water. Of course, I never did this because I would not have made any of Jesse’s letters public without his permission. I assume that they never believed what I was saying. Now, after all this time, they have the proof.
January, 2000 – “Should we make the book fictional instead?”
