New High Resolution Russell Letter About Tesla!
March 20th 1954
Dear Dr. Lee:
(*Note: Dr. Royal Lee was a dentist, inventor, and pioneer in nutrition. He founded Standard Process laboratories which still manufactures natural whole food concentrates.)
I cannot tell you how pleased my wife (Lao) and I were to receive a copy of the Tesla book which you reprinted for the benefit of thinkers in science. Nikola Tesla and I exchanged inspirations for many years. He was an artist at heart whom the world knew as a scientist - while I was a scientist at heart whom the world knew as an artist.
He was my spiritual mainstay while I produced my greatest work in sculpture - The Mark Twain Memorial, and I likewise spiritually supported when his soul was low from doubtings and attacks by lesser minds.
I give you these reasons why I especially thank you for the book - but I also add an appreciation for your vision which indicates a love and admiration for him such as had grown in me.
I could never understand why Nikola Tesla was not proclaimed the greatest man in science of his day - for he was just that and your gesture in printing that book makes me feel deeply indebted to you in my friend’s name.
Thinking you may be interested to know of our work here - and my unrewarded contributions to science which have received even less recognition than Nikola’s - having given the six transuranium elements to the world as you will see by the enclose charts - I enclosed a little booklet of my life and my second open letter to science for your perusal.
Mrs. Russell joins me in extending to you a cordial invitation to visit our mountain top shrine at any time you may feel like looking at the other side of the model upon which is written the constitution of matter from Nature’s point of view to replace the unnatural one written on the visible side by man.
Thanking you again and looking forward to an interchange of thoughts whenever you feel so inclined, we extend to you our good wishes and greetings.
