The note is found on a shelf behind the desk in Sam Blackwell's office at the Charleston Capitol Building, within the package for Sam Blackwell. It can be placed on the green conspiracy board with chalk on it in the Grafton Pawn Shop.
Dear Senator Blackwell,
If you would permit me to say this, even though I do not know you, I recognize a like mind. Someone willing to see beyond the facile "truths" that we are spoon fed.
Know that if you read this, I am dead. Killed by agents of the US Government intent on keeping a conspiracy secret. As improbable as it may seem, the "Treasure of Appalachia" is not a hoax. It is real, and people have been killed for it.
Enclosed is part of my findings. Please, broadcast, publish, and distribute. If the other evidence is also shared, you or someone else may put all the pieces together and achieve the final truth.
