Michael 5260
Lindbergh the penman.

According to A&M's hypothesis Charles Lindbergh accidentally killed his son during a playful kidnapping practical joke.

After dumping the body in the woods on the side of the road Lindbergh returned home and went into his library where with his papers and pens and fabricated the nursery note.

In May of 1932 handwriting examinations disclosed that all of the Lindbergh ransom notes and envelopes were written by one writer. This was a unanimous finding among all the handwriting examiners in 1932. Even the gumshoe Jesse W. Pelletreau, working for the defense, made the same determination. There was only one writer.

How in the world did Lindbergh write the other fourteen ransom notes, envelopes, sleeping suit wrapper address, and mail them all to himself? How was Lindbergh able to place two directional notes underneath rocks near Woodlawn and St. Raymond's cemeteries? This certainly takes the art of prestidigitation into its outer limits.

The physical evidence does not support A&M's thesis.

As Lt. Joe Kenda would say, "My, my, my".

          No, I am not familiar with the Bush memo case. And the way in which you wrote a line or two makes me think you are a handwriting "expert." Are you, or was that all conjecture?,
