Dear Mr. Marx,
After due consideration, I am returning your contribution of $100.00 to the KRONOS Endowment Fund. We wish to make it clear that we disapprove of your continued distortions of the facts concerning Velikovsky; it is therefore inappropriate to accept your donation. My initial impulse was to accept the money if, for no other reason, for the trouble you have caused Prof. Greenberg and myself, to say nothing of the anguish you have caused Dr. Velikovsky and his family.
I have been more closely associated with the Velikovsky family for twenty five years than anyone presently associated with his work and I can tell you, that no other individual has caused Dr. Velikovsky more pain, more trouble, more heartache than you. I cannot tell you how many hours I spent with him drafting letters, discussing ways to stop your activities. He finally decided to write you in his own handwriting disavowing you as his agent but still you persist in inventing the idea that it was his wife who opposed you. This is a total fabrication; I was in their home on a daily basis and there was never a disagreement on this point. The last year of Dr. Velikovskys life was almost totally taken up with the question of how to put a stop to your activities. He rued the day he ever met you. I hate to be so blunt but it seems the only way to get through to you.
On the other hand, I think you know perfectly well what the facts are and that you have used Velikovsky for your own self interest.
