July 1, 1996: Jeffrey MacDonald's follow-up letter re: "going home"

I have redacted the name of the person the letter is written per request

(Spelling, punctuation and grammar preserved)


DATE: JULY 1, 1996

****, I wrote to you previously re: your request on "going home." As luck would have it, I just received, via another inmate ("Jim"), a very typical letter from an inmate who has been home for 2 weeks. This particular inmate is white, with one year post-high school education, and he was grievously injured in a shoot-out with a SWAT team. He has a "permanent" huge hole in his left chest/back from shotgun blasts, and his heart is essentially "open" to view through the hole in his back. I used to teach him how to correctly dress the wound. He spent about 7 years in prison and just went home. Note the tone of his letter. He is experiencing what you and I were discussing, including scents.

Note: The story about not having his massive wound properly closed for seven years is amazing. But, in brief, he wanted a 2nd opinion and was scared. So the doctor here interpreted that as "no" and henceforth wouldn't allow surgery. Now he badly needs it.
