YOUR EYES ONLY --- TOP SECRET
November 11, 1963
I must protest your comment to the Executive Committee the other day the so-called "plague" originated in the Joy Factory. We've acknowledge that waste material have at times been dumped into the river, obviously by accident; and that the fog rising off the river has been slightly toxic. However, to claim that we created mutant mushrooms in some sort of unscientific attempt to generate new chemical stocks for Joy --- I can't help chuckling even as I write it down!
Regardless, I am vey close to a permanent solution to all this mess. I am developing a treatment that will render Joy obsolete. Stay tuned!
