Louis Beam to HAC
You are honest about yourself, about Glenn, and about the movement. So far as I can tell about you, honesty is your strong point and should be your moral authority.
I remember the farm in North Carolina, Glenn's drinking and other such events as I went there in 1984 and five to meet him and to speak at his gatherings a couple of times. It was as you say. Doug Sheets, Jackson, and Steve Miller have all told me their stories about Glenn and it is as you say and worse.
I had a jailer secretly come to my cell door at Springfield Federal prison one day during the lunch hour for the other guards. While this guard was alone in the hall of the solitary confinement block where I was kept he whispered into the crack of my door some interesting comments. First he said he supported me and admired my stand for the white race. Then he said, "You are not like Glenn Miller" (who had previously been on the same block prior to my arrival). As best I can remember (and I paraphrase this as the years have gone by since I heard the guard speak to me) that Miller was a crying recovering drunk who "complained and acted like a crybaby" all the time till the FBI would come and take him out of his cell. Even the prison guards who supported the white struggle thought Miller was a total wash out and a "sorry example of white manhood." Doug Sheets who was down the hall from me told me that this same guard would help him from time to time with small favors, so I know the guard was indeed a supporter of the many white prisoners who were being held there at this time for various anti-government work on behalf of the folk...
It was but a short time later that I found out that Miller was to testify against me and others in the 88 Sedition trial at Fort Smith.
Your position on the use of alcohol is correct based on my own personal experience and observation over some thirty years. Quality of people, not quantity was my own rule based on hard experience within the movement.
I wish success for the NW migration and have supported it wholeheartedly for some twenty-five years now. I wrote an essay entitled "Common Sense" back in 84 with my vision of just such a migration inspired by Pastor Butler and Bob Miles. Every folk must have a homeland. There is no more beautiful and fitting place than the Northwest.
