Peoples Temple Collection; Box 17, Virtual item 20, Q600 Part 2- Jones meeting
April 10, 1978

This tape was one of the 53 tapes initially withheld from public disclosure.

This meeting of the Jonestown community in April 1978 includes most of the elements from the gatherings of this period: there are reports from the various administrative departments, and a reading of praises and warnings; people are analyzed as they present their reports, they enter into arguments with each other and with Jim Jones, and several are disciplined; the crowd is often involved and animated, sometimes angry, sometimes quiet, often filled with laughter. Jim Jones directs the meeting, but many people participate, including those with some authority.

Full summary of the recording available at Alternative Considerations of Jonestown website, along with the tape transcript.
