Add the following paragraph before the very last paragraph:

Obviously by now you have been made aware of our consistent practice of cooperative living and elimination of racism, elitism, sexism and ‘age-ism’ in an atmosphere of total peace, where families never even employ corporal punishment in rearing their children. We have no violence or coercion of any kind, and total freedom of movement and the best of food, houseing, recreation and excellent medical care. One of the prominent Guyana government officials recently said that we were the only US group that really has licked the racial problem totally and we indeed have done so.
