THE EMBASSY HAS CONTACTED THE ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT OF MAILS AT THE GUYANA POST OFFICE COOPERATION AND INQUIRED ABOUT THE DISPOSITION OF MAIL ADDRESSED TO THE PEOPLE’S TEMPLE (POST OFFICE BOX 893).

ASM HAS INFORMED US THAT, AT THE END OF THIS MONTH, ALL UNCLAIMED MAIL FROM THAT BOX WILL BE RETURNED TO THE SENDERS. SURVIVORS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PICK UP THEIR OWN MAIL UPON IDENTIFYING THEMSELVES AT THE POST OFFICE. OUR OWN EXPERIENCE INDICATES THAT LOCAL POST OFFICE FREQUENTLY BUT NOT ALWAYS RETURNS UNDELIVERABLE MAIL TO SENDER.
