On 9th August, 1984, Estes' lawyer, Douglas Caddy, wrote to Stephen S. Trott at the U.S. Department of Justice. In the letter Caddy claimed that Estes, Lyndon B. Johnson, Mac Wallace and Cliff Carter had been involved in the murders of Henry Marshall, George Krutilek, Harold Orr, Ike Rogers, Coleman Wade, Josefa Johnson, John Kinser and John F. Kennedy. Caddy added: "Mr. Estes is willing to testify that LBJ ordered these killings, and that he transmitted his orders through Cliff Carter to Mac Wallace, who executed the murders."

I wanted to remind readers that Caddy was also involved very quickly as an attorney in the Watergate matter.  Caddy has been discussed in another thread.

Is Caddy still alive?

I have seen a copy of this letter on the Internet.  Can someone post a copy of it in this thread (or a link to the letter?),  I'm sure Forum members/guests would like to see the original letter.

Yes Caddy is still alive.

His letter can be found in the book the Men on the Sixth Floor. I could try scanning it, but the last thing I scanned was Castro's speech on 11/23/63 and John did not post it because he said it was not good quality. I scanned it directly from the book in which it is printed. (Marty Schotz "History Will Not Absolve us").

So hopefully Larry may have a copy of it and is better at scanning than am I.

ps I did also scan a letter from Jim Garrison (top me) to Wim's forum and it came out fine, so I do not know why there was a problem with the Castro speech, as I did nothing differently. The most facinating thing to me about this particular letter is the date on which it was written. And of course it's author Doug Caddy is also quite interesting, is he not Larry?

Does anyone know what was Mac Wallace's political ideology?

Interesting question. You have obviously not read my biography of Wallace.

In 1941 Wallace became a student at the University of Texas in Austin. He began to take an interest in politics and was elected president of the Student Union. In October, 1944, Homer P. Rainey, president of the University of Texas and an outspoken supporter of the Socialist Party, was fired. Wallace led a protest march of 8,000 students but the campaign to have Rainey reinstated ended in failure.

At this time Wallace was seen as a left-wing figure (in the same way as LBJ was seen as a radical in the early 1940s). It was one of the reasons why Wallace went to work for LBJ. Of course, like LBJ, these radical views disappeared before the arrival of the 1950s.

John, have you read Barr McLellan's book "Blood, Money and Power"?

(Re Wallace's politics?)

Yes. The chapters on Texas politics are the best thing about the book. His theories about LBJ and Ed Clark may well be true. However, he provides no real evidence for this view.

I would not be surprised if some of this material came from the Republican Party. (I am aware of course of what job his son has). There is not doubt that the Democratic Party in Texas between 1920 and 1968 was a den of corruption.

I spent many weeks last year defending Barr( in the "critical community)- based upon the fact that his son happens to be W.'s press secty. Barr and their mother were divorced and the kids mainly grew up with their mother, in AUstin. Barr's work is not influenced by his son's job. Barr had been trying to get this book published a full 7 years prior to its release last October 2003. Well before W was president.

Barr knows I have a great deal of trouble with all of his "faction" portion of the book, indeed we had many daily emails on this last year, and he spent two days as our guest on 11/23 and 24/ 03. He has promised me that there will be revisions to the book. But he is currently involved in raising funds for litigation, doing consultation work in New York- (based on email from him yesterday)- which occupies much of his time. I believe the litigation is centered around the HC censorship, but am awaiting further clarification from him.

But yes, the Democratic party in Tx. was terribly corrupt, and LBJ began that way and continued to be so long as he held political office.

John, I think his one son is the GB press spokesman and the other is the Commissioner of the FDA.

From what I understand they are not enraptured with Daddy's book.

Tim:

You are correct, they refuse all comment on it. However I do think that the fact Scott, W's press secty., choose 11/22/03 to get married speaks for itself. Maybe just a coincidence, but it sure seemed to be a (negative) comment on Dad's book, to my way of thinking.

But we never discuss his former wife or their kids. SOme things are just off limits, like a person's personal family life, where kids are grown and make own decisions.

John and others, in the book McCellan states that Wallace was a Marxist and in fact had trouble getting a security clearance because of his associations.

Food for thought, anyway, re who may have been Wallace's true sponsor.

John, I think you once suggested Wallace's fingerprint may have been planted to intimidate LBJ. Perhaps Wallace was involved for that same reason.

Tim: The fingerprint was not "planted". Or do you think Castro did this too??B))

And Wallace did have have security clearance. In fact he had one of the highest that can be obtained. (1. lowest is confidential, next is top secret and next is secret: Mac Wallace had "secret"!!)
