JFK's Mistress: The Secret Link To The Kennedy Assassination
The Strange Case Of Timothy Leary
A little more than a week after Dallas, Timothy Leary received a disturbing phone call from Mary Meyer. "They couldn't control him anymore," said Mary between her sobbing and crying. "He was changing too fast. They've covered everything up. I gotta come see you. I'm afraid. Be careful."
Less than a yaer later, on September 24, 1964, Leary said, he received a late-afternoon telephone call from Mary Pinchot. Leary described her as sounding on the verge of "hysteria." She had rented a car at New York's La Guardia Airport and had driven up to Millbrook [where Leary resided], wanting to meet with Leary privately. They agreed on a remote location where, as he wrote, "the trees were turning technicolor" with fall's foliage, "the sky glaring indigo—with the bluest girl in the world next to me."
She told him: "I may be in real trouble. I really shouldn't be here. You must be very careful now, Timothy. Don't make any waves. No publicity. I'm afraid for you. I'm afraid for all of us."
"I know what you're thinking," she said. "This is not paranoia. I've gotten mixed up in some dangerous matters. It's real. You've got to believe me." She went on: "Look, if I ever showed up here suddenly, could you hide me out for a while?"
"Sure," he said. But this would be the last time he would ever see her alive.
