U.S. Bureau of Prisons
320 First Street, NW
Washington, DC 20534

Dear Mr. Lappin:

It has come to my attention that Leonard Peltier #89637-132, an
inmate at the U.S. Penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, is in
dire need of medical attention.

I believe that Mr. Peltier's medical needs are urgent. He needs to be
seen by proper medical staff. Therefore, I respectfully request that
Leonard Peltier be transferred to FCI-Oxford in Wisconsin or
FMC-Rochester in Minnesota. Either of these facilities can adequately
accommodate Mr. Peltier's medical needs.

Thank you in advance for transferring Leonard Peltier and immediately
addressing his medical needs!




Thank you for all you do on Mr. Peltier's behalf.
