Dear Mr. President:
First, I would like to introduce myself. I am Elvis Presley and admire you and have great respect for your office. I talked to Vice President Agnew in Palm Springs three weeks ago and expressed my concerns for our country. The drug culture, the hippie elements, the SDS, Black Panthers, etc. do not consider me as their enemy or as they call it, the establishment. I call it America and I love it. Sir, I can and will be of any service that I can to help the country out. I have no concerns or motives other than helping the country out. So, I wish not to be given a title or an appointed position. I can and will do more good if I were made a Federal Agent at Large and I will help out by doing it my way through communications with people of all ages. First and foremost, I am an entertainer, but all I need is the Federal credentials. I am on the plane with Senator George Murphy and we have been discussing the problems that our country is faced with.
Sir, I am staying at the Washington Hotel, Room 505-506-507. I have two men who work with me by the name of Jerry Schilling and Sonny West. I am registered under the name of Jon Burrows. I will be here for as long as it takes to get the credentials of a Federal Agent. I have done an in-depth study of drug abuse and Communist brainwashing techniques and I am right in the middle of the whole thing I can and will do the most good.
I am glad to help just so long as it is kept very private. You can have your staff or whomever call me anytime today, tonight or tomorrow. I was nominated this coming year one of America's Ten Most Outstanding Young Man. That will be in January 18 in my home town of Memphis, Tennessee. I am sending you a short autobiography about myself so you can better understand this approach. I would love to meet you just to say hello if you're not too busy.
P.S. I believe that you, Sir, were one of the Top Ten Outstanding Men of America Also.
I have a personal gift for you which I would like to present to you and you can accept it or I will keep it for you until you can take it.
Do they serve fried peanut butter & quaalude sandwiches in the Quantico cafeteria?

Elvis was messed up, but he was someone who loved his country and served in her military. For that alone he deserves our respect - regardless what other issues he ran in to in his life.
Purportedly, when they met in the Oval Office, Nixon said to Elvis, “that’s quite an outfit you’ve got on, Elvis.”
Elvis answered: “Mr. President, you do your thing, and I’ll do mine.”
I love that.
You are so right. Elvis had his problems, but he is light years away from today’s celebrities who constantly denigrate the country that made them famous and wealthy. Elvis appreciated the greatness of America and never hesitated to show his gratefulness to the country that gave a dirt poor kid from Mississippi a chance to make it. He was proud of his military service and always sang at least one patriotic song during his concerts. His American Trilogy will give you chill bumps.
I loved Elvis. I still am hypnotized by his voice. I was seventeen when he died. I was devastated even though I knew he was a druggie. I always felt sorry for him. He had everything and yet he had nothing at all.
But back to the Nixon thing. I find it humorous he had it out for the drug peeps with all the drugs he was doing at the time. And Nixon did give him a badge (Bureau of Narcotics Dangerous Drugs). Elvis gave Nixon a Colt .45. Elvis was a big gun nut. It is said he carried a Derringer in his boot and one or two guns in his pockets. (can someone say Paranoia?). I read a report once that he bought more than $20,000 in guns in 1970 alone! What a spokesman for the NRA!
On this trip to DC, Elvis was at the airport and gave away all of the money he had in his pocket at the time, something like $500, to a vietnam vet returning from the war.
Elvis was a weird dude, claiming that the Beatles came here, made their money and then went back to England to spout anti-American sentiment. He may have had some issues but I don’t think anyone can say he was anti-American. Hmm, makes me want to listen to American Trilogy now.
Just joking around. Your right. He was an American good ol’ boy and a decent guy. It’s shame his addictions ended up destroying him.
That letter’s a forgery. He didn’t include the flight number, altitude or location. It isn’t an official missive. < /sarc >
Meanwhile John Lennon plotted to dose Nixon’s coffee with LSD. Grace Slick attempted the same thing (and at least got inside the White House).
They may have all done drugs, but some acted “differently”.
Elvis got started on uppers and downers in the military when they gave the troops uppers to keep them alert when on watch and downers to allow them to sleep afterward. That, along with his horrible eating habits, (fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches anyone?) killed him far too young.
It’s clear that Elvis didn’t go to a Catholic school. Penmanship like that would have earned him some serious whacking with a T-Square by Sister Mary Swat Team.
Lol, I posted a thread last year on his birthday date about his peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
