Prime Minister L.F.S. Burnham

Dear Prime Minister Burnham:

This letter is in reference to Rev. Jim Jones whom I have known for about two years. Prior to that time I knew of his work in the San Francisco Community.

Rev. Jones has been very supportive of local programs designed to rehabilitate ex-offenders. As the past Director of the Police Community Relations Unit of the San Francisco Police Department, I personally know that members of his organization were instrumental in abating one of San Francisco’s most serious social problems existing in the Fillmore District of our City.

Rodney E. Williams
