have served as a mirror through which I can see myself. I wish I could tell you more about the courageous band of colleagues with whom I suffer humiliation daily and who nevertheless deport themselves with dignity and determination. I wish I could relate their conversations and banter, their readiness to help in any personal problem suffered by their fellow prisoners so that you could judge for yourself the calibre of the men whose lives are being sacrificed on the fiendish altar of colour hatred. But a curious warder is walking up and down the corridor, peering from time to time and stopping to chat. I am working under heavy pressure and strict deadlines. Every completed sheet must leave my hands daily and I never see it again.

Add Notes:

(A) Re Fatima and Ismail ensure sufficient said possibly where I dea lwith Fatima's visit bring out my great regard for them and indebtedness. Ismail was the 2nd man next to Gaur who influenced me greatly with his marxist outlook.

(B) Poks mention that when he came here (April '68 was in section from August '67 to April '68) after initial warmth of meeting he was inclined to be over suspicious, sensitive and un co operative at first. Perhaps his attitude and that of Louis reflected some mistakes on our part for they seemd to have worked well with our fellows in the sections. But he seems to have overcome these now add this in CHapter 16.
