Re: Disability Claim No. xxx-xx-xxxx
Enclosed with respect to the above-referenced claim is additional documentation.
One assumes that in cases of paranoia an evaluation of the patient's cognition/information processing/intellectual functioning is all-important. Accordingly, I submit the following:
(1.) Letter of reference prepared in about early 1982 by Thomas Jennings, Esq.
(2.) Letter of reference prepared by Seymour J. Rubin, Esq. in 1985. (Earlier in his career, Mr. Rubin had formed a law partnership with James Landis, who later served as Dean of Harvard Law School. Mr. Rubin is himself a graduate of Harvard Law School, where he was a student of (later U.S. Supreme Court Justice) Felix Frankfurter.
(I had supplied Akin Gump a copy of these letters in June 1988 at the time I was hired.)
(3.) Results of standardized academic testing relating to logic/reasoning skills. My relatively high reasoning ability must have some relevance to my paranoia, specifically the way in which I process perceptions and arrive at inferences.
The enclosed materials raise further questions regarding Dr. Cuenco's observation that I am a person of about average intelligence.
Also included for your information are the handwritten notes prepared by Dr. Pitts, dated August 26, 1993, which were referred to in one of my previous letters.
