American criminal and head of the Manson crime "Family" currently serving a life sentence for the horrific murders of actress Sharon Tate and four other guests at her home in Benedict Canyon, north of Beverly Hills, California.


Manson believed in what he called, "Helter Skelter", a term he took from the Beatles' tune of the same name, which he believed to be an impending apocalyptic race war.


Extraordinary partial handwritten draft, 8.5" x 11" on standard white paper, from prison, in which Manson addresses his vision of "Helter Skelter" and claims Manson Family credit ("We") for starting a "rebirth". Manson has drawn a large "X" through the draft, as well.


Scarce and incredible content, as Manson typically refuses to discuss the murders or "Helter Skelter" inspiration, let alone answer outside correspondence any more. Replete with Manson's misspellings, nearly 45 words in his own hand.


Mimicking the legendary, "When I get to the bottom / I go back to the top of the slide / Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride / Til I get to the bottom and I see you again" classic Beatles lyrics, Manson writes:


"It like the ball going up + stoping + coming down IT is not seen to stop but it WILL STOP - then it STARTS again..."We" did that - we brought and was part of change - IT STOPED NIXON STARTED to come down WAR STOPPED + A Rebirth Started..."


With original folds and staple holes, as shown.


GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC to pass any reputable third-party authentication service. 


Sold as is, as shown.
