Dear Chaplain Brown and Ms. Perry:
I am so pleased to be able to advise you that Mr. Ziglar is scheduling his return to Dallas from Jackson to allow him time to visit the Veteran's Group at FCI Yazoo City on Thursday, September 6. Working backwards from his departure time of 5:05 p.m. that afternoon, and allowing an hour for the drive from Yazoo City to Jackson, I believe if he leaves the facility by 3:00 p.m. he should have ample time to drive to the airport and return his rental car. If you can allocate about an hour for him to speak to the inmate population at FCI Yazoo City, we can plan for him to arrive there around 1:30 p.m.
Please let me know what more we can do to facilitate this visit by Mr. Ziglar. You may contact me by phone at 800/527-0306 or 972/383-3221; by fax at 972-991-1853; and by email at
We truly are excited about this opportunity for Mr. Ziglar to visit with you and your associates. I look forward to hearing from you with further details.

To whom it may concern:
Americans are now observing crime gone rampant especially among
our youth. Recently I have been informed by a law enforcement authority
that we may see riots in our streets. There is a growing cancer of lawlessness
in our society.
As a minister of the gospel for over six decades,as well as a counselor
for over two decades, I am appalled over what is in our immediate
future. We stand in dire need of an individual who has experienced this
evolving monster which may engulf us.
Recently I was fortunate to have heard a speaker at Millbrook High
School in Raleigh, North Carolina. The speaker addressed a large number
of students as he related his personal dealings with crime. As I watched
their faces I knew he had reached their hearts and souls. This was later
verified by their open positive response to what they had heard. Thus I
became convinced that he was the individual that is needed to assist in
crime prevention. Never have I experienced such a demanding and convincing
authority who could lead our youth to become outstanding in our
community to defeat this enemy in this time.
Once you hear Richard Hamilton III you may also agree that his life
story could create a moving book and documentary film.

RE: Availability of Gifted Speaker to Encourage Young People Stay on Track
I am providing you with the attached information because I'm convinced that I know an individual, Richard Hamilton, who has the potential to influence high school students and young adults to not make decisions and take actions that will impact on them and their love ones in a negative way.
Mr. Hamilton provides his services to help young people stay on track, not to make money. Since this gifted speaker has expenses associated with traveling, it would be helpful if he could receive funds that he could assist more teens and adults to behave and become exemplary citizens.
The attached should provide you with information about Richard Hamilton's past and abilities but should you like to have official documentation concerning his past and accomplishments I shall be glad to provide it.
