Truth Letter

    In 1968, Joachim Joesten started a newsletter entitled "Truth Letter" from his temporary base in Munich. The Dallas JFK Archives contains scanned copies of each of the pages of the sample copy he sent to potential subscribers around the U.S., the copy in question having gone to Mr. Charles N. Batchelor, the Chief of Police in Dallas. In it, Joesten describes how the newsletter will cost $45.00 per year, a princely sum in those days, and the purpose of the newsletter: "to keep readers of my many printed books about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy abreast of current developments in the case, including in particular the progress of the Garrison investigation. In addition, "Truth Letter" will also keep you informed about the true background and hidden aspects of the two other political murder cases intimately linked to the "Crime of the Century,": to wit assassination of Senator Robert Kennedy and the slaying of Dr. Martin Luther King."
    Here are GIF images of the nine pages, including front and back of the envelope, that the archives contains.
