Summary of Content: Atkins writes to Sanders from prison while serving time for her part in the Tate-LaBianca murders committed while a member of the Manson family. She discusses making a birthday present for her sister-in-law, her typewriter, a new sewing project, and the 3-D computer generated image she wants for Christmas. She likes reading Christian books, and would like copies of ”Flying Closer to the Flame” and ”Divine Romance.” She answers Kregg’s question about Pat Krenwinkel--remarking that she has only contempt for ”what’s his name [Manson].” She hope’s Pat’s anger will subside so she can be completely free of Manson.
