Dear Mr. Leadroot:
This letter is intended to advise you of additional information that may be useful in your evaluation of my case.
1. On file at the George Washington University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry is a memorandum prepared in April 1994, about one year ago, by my former treating psychiatrist, Suzanne M. Pitts, M.D., and sent to Stuart Sotsky, M.D. The memorandum details and summarizes my mental state as of April 1994 and contains recommendations regarding future treatment. I have not read the memo and therefore cannot relate the specific content of the memo. I happened to see a copy of the memo on the desk of my current treating psychiatrist, Dr. Georgopoulos, some weeks ago, at which time I gleaned the memo's content.
The U.S. Secret Service may want to obtain a copy of the memo to assist in its psychological evaluation of me.
2. I want to bring to your attention a curious feature of the results of psychological testing that GW performed in May 1994. The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale ("Wechsler IQ Test") indicated an IQ of 129. The attached memo to Yu-Ling Han summarizes the results of IQ tests I had taken in the past: at age 11 1/2 my IQ was measured at 125; at age 12 1/2 my IQ was measured at 122.
Psychological studies have established in recent years that mental illness, especially severe mental illness, tends to depress IQ scores. One such study indicated that severe mental illness can depress IQ scores by up to 9%. It is indeed curious that IQ testing performed by GW in May 1994--at a time when, according to GW, I suffered from a severe and debilitating mental illness--indicates the highest IQ scores I have ever had in my life! By analogy, imagine a situation in which a coroner pronounces a man dead, yet states in the coroner's report that the corpse had a post-mortem temperature significantly higher than was was recorded prior to death.
