                                 North Hollywood, Calif.
                                 October 15, 1947

Los Angeles, 25, Calif.


	This is a request for treatment.

	My residence is north of North Hollywood, 
but I attend school at Geller Theater Workshop, 
Fairfax and Wilshire, Los Angeles.   It would be 
appreciated if any out-physician selected would 
be located near my school as I have a vacant 
hour and a half from 1 to 2:30 four days each 
week at school.  I work at night six days per week.

	I was placed on certain medication back 
east and have continued it at my own expense.

	After trying and failing for two years 
to regain my equilibrium in civil life, I am 
utterly unable to approach anything like my 
own competence.  My last physician informed me 
that it might be very helpful if I were to be 
examined and perhaps treated psychiatrically 
or even by a psycho-analyst.  Toward the end 
of my service I avoided out of pride any mental 
examinations, hoping that time would balance 
a mind which I had every reason to suppose was 
seriously affected.  I cannot account for nor 
rise above long periods of moroseness and suicidal 
inclinations, and have newly come to realize that 
I must first triumph above this before I can hope 
to rehabilitate myself at all.

	I cannot leave school or what little work 
I am doing for hospitalization due to many 
obligations, but I feel I might be treated outside, 
possibly with success.  I cannot, myself, 
afford such treatment.

	Would you please help me?
