Peoples Temple Collection; Box 20, Virtual Item 19, Q710- Jim Jones telephone conversation with Dennis Denny
July, 1975

This tape, which the FBI initially withheld from disclosure, consists of a telephone conversation between Jim Jones and Dennis Denny, the director of Social Services for Mendocino County. The two men discuss some complaints that a few elderly Temple members have made about the operator of a care home, but the conversation is apparently not the first the two men have had about the subject, and without more background information than what is mentioned here, the context is unclear. (Some of the same concerns – and people – are discussed in Q 686, although the notations on the tape boxes indicate this tape predates the other by three months.)

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