So I opened the magazine and the first article I saw was one with illustrations of necklaces in the form of devil signs and people participating in a witchcraft ceremony. The next page had an article about a girl called Leda, and her black swan, which we discussed. I turned the page and saw an article on the Sharon Tate murders--  we said it was terrible and that drug abusers were sick, disturbed people. I closed the magazine and placed it back on the table, and we continuing watching TV. Altogether, the conversation about the entire series of articles lasted about 10 minutes out of a 2 1/2 - 3 hour visit, and most of that ten minutes we  we discussed Leda and her black swan.

After the incident, I saw Jeff in the hospital on the afternoon of the 17th. He had a large bruise and lump on the left side of his forehead and more lumps on the left side of his head. He also had numerous ice pick wounds on his chest and arms, and also what looked like wo knife wounds on his abdomen.

I have been placed on administrative hold several times during the past four months, but have been cleared to proceed to Vietnam on this date by a prosecuting lawyer. I am to report to port of embarkation, Travis AFB, 17 July 70.
