Peoples Temple Collection; Box 14, Virtual Item 8 -  Q399 - Part 1, News and commentary
October 23, 1978

Speaking slowly and with seeming great effort, Jim Jones reads the news for Sunday, October 22, 1978. He sounds either tired or sedated, and there are numerous occasions where he mispronounces common words as well as proper names. He also complains of not being able to read his own notes.

Apart from news stories, there’s little else in terms of community announcements. There is Jones’ usual urging for Temple members to work harder, including volunteering to help make toys to fulfill a $33,000 order.

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