Letter from Frank 'Parky' Grace to Gloria Xifaras Clark
@ University of Massachusetts, Amherst
DescriptionNot entirely self-sufficient: "At the present time the person who committed the crime I am now doing this life bid for wants to come forward with the truth. Our lawyer warns against it. He says the court would throw it out..." Needs community support and activists on the outside; does not trust his lawyer: "We're from different classes. I'm against what he stands for and he's against what I stand for. I know I'm here because there was a conspiracy." Asks Gloria to see what support he can get from the community. Asked the warden if he was "involved in a conspiracy to drive myself and Lynette mad. For a while after that the psychological bombardment ceased. Myself and Lynette have suffered and continue to suffer from wife open fascist, racist attacks. Everybody including the blind can see the brutal psychological warfare being committed against us. I'm a special prisoner here in Walople, and I get special treatment. None of it good." Describes daily routine; meeting new arrival, a Puerto Rican guy from New Bedford; meeting with high school students from Wellesley with a group on race relations/
