Exhibit R-11

Dear Ingrid:
August 18, 1997

You asked for a response from me in a recent fax. I told you then that I was writing out my thoughts and my life and my future.

Here is what I have arrived at:

1. I am committed to my marriage.

2. I find that the current working arrangement has led to repeated uproars and upsets. I do want to put an end to that situation.

3. Therefor I do no longer want to make suggestions or give you advise [sic] on the content or topics of any z-grams after 31. August 1997.

4. I would like you to do my newsletters as we have done them til now til Dece. 1997, type them, format them and post them on the Zuendelsite along with the occassional press release.

5. I would like you to post some of the new material I am currently working on with Marc and others like translations by Anneliese Winter??off, some German, Russian and Hungarian material til Dec.

6. I understand that you were unhappy with the working relationship, because you felt creatively stifled, did not get enough input from me etc. therefor I think you should concen-

trate on finding other employment and or promoting the novel which you say is now in the pre-printing stage.

7. My business year at Samisdat ends at Dec. 31. therefor I would like you to check with Webcom and CTS what contracts there were, what kind of advance notice they need for cancellation, etc. and let me know the details, dates, costs, etc.

8. I do not expect you to carry on the Zuendelsite and z- grams or e-mail on my behalf. If you should find a sponsor and or sponsors I want to put on a suitable disclaimer which relieves me of any association, or financial or legal responsibility for the Zuendelsite, z-grams, e-mail, etc.

9. I would like to have any copies of e-mail you saved which concerned me, in case of future lawsuits I might face, or questions I might have to answer if you have kept such e-mail. To have it on diskette would be sufficient and to mail it to me for safe keeping.

10. I would like you not to gossip with Rose

with Marc, Bernard, Juergen, Barbara, Keltie, etc. I told you that I hated more than anything else in the world that people who worked with me and for me and claimed to be comrades would discuss me, my life, my work, my family affairs, etc. behind my back, using what are undoubtedly bugged telephones, bugged faxes and bugged and intercepted e- mail and snail-mail.

I told you that I would find the leak one day and that I would undertake steps to plug the leaks. I now have and will in the future.

11. Too often caution was thrown to the wind because of emotions, egos, etc. I have hated that with a passion for it showed a total disregard for my very sound reasons. It also showed a lack of loyalty to me -- and by extension the cause. The recent RCMP search warrant ought to have shown everybody what extensive use is made by the authorities of parallel faxes, intercepted and even decoded encrypted e- mail and bugged phone calls.

12. I have one more time warned everybody at H.Q. of the dire consequences to anyone ignoring this request.

13. This brings me to my personal life and once again I stress that I expect this to be confidential between you and me.

I want you to understand that what was between you and me is in the past and has come to an end.

I am committed to make my marriage work. I do not want you to make enquiries about me, my life, my wife, our relationship. You have now no place in my personal life.

14. I have admired your skill as a wordsmith and creative writer. I am grateful for the long hours and hard work you have put in to do the Bauerschaft, the newsletters, the Zuendelsite etc. I felt that we both served the cause of Revisionism and the cause of truth for the German people well, but now it's time to move on, for both of us to go our separate ways.

I wish you well with the novel and hope it will achieve all the things you are hoping for. This letter is sent from within the U.S.A. to avoid snoops and censors. All the best, Ernst.
