Dear Jimi:

     Regina Jackson, or Diana Carpenter, whichever name you prefer, is contemplating initiating paternity proceedings against you.

     I met with her lawyer and her on Tuesday in Minneapolis.  She told me she had spoken to you about two weeks previous, but you never mentioned this to me. The lawyer has some grand ideas about your setting up a trust for the child to assure her education and support.  Under normal circumstances, this would be desirable, but in your present financial condition it is impossible.  We will have to work our some kind of weekly or monthly support payment.

     The baby is having a blood test made at Minneapolis, and I will be informed of the laboratory in New York where you are to have your test taken.  The bloods will then be matched, and will determine whether or not you are the father.

     Please call me because there are many things to talk about.
