I had posted a photocopy of Jaye Paro’s sketch of her alien/android contact Agar a while back; I’ve turned up the original, so I’ll post it here as well.
The sketch was included in a letter to John, purportedly from Mr. Apol, a dapper humanoid who also makes a memorable appearance in The Mothman Prophecies. John carried on a fascinating correspondence with this enigmatic character, who always wrote in crudely lettered red pencil. As I said in the last post, I think he was a product of Paro’s imagination or subconscious; at any rate, all of John’s dealings with him were through her.
“Tim’na” was Apol’s name for Paro, by the way. I’ll transcribe the letter, since aliens have notoriously poor penmanship; I will, however, keep the eccentric spelling and punctuation. This is a good sample of the kind of material that John was contending with on a daily basis in 1967.
TO JOHN –
