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.
