Dear Sir,

I have recently learnt of your studies of Sai Baba.

I have also travelled to India and seen B.Premanand replicate Sai Baba's materializations"using sleight of hand.

As an amateur magician I have often fooled scientists with my sleight of hand and wish to know if you have any training in magic and, if not, have considered joining a magic club.

I believe that only by reaching a reasonable skill in sleight of hand will you be equipped to properly evaluate Sai Baba.

Yours sincerely,

MARK PLUMMER, Executive Director.
