Memo from Tom Grubbs to Jim Jones

H-1-d-12, p. 84

To: Dad
From: Tom Grubbs

I request to be permitted to miss tonight’s Thursday rally and for Ken N. [Norton] to miss also. We need to repair one bow, make two crossbow strings, repair several arrows, and make a modification on the crossbows to prevent breaking anymore strings. We desire to be allowed to work in the saw mill tent.

Progress Report: We now have three long bowmen and 6 crossbowmen who are quite accurate at distances up to 100 feet.

3 other persons expressing a desire to be on the silent weapons force are:

Mark Wagner
Odell Roads [Rhodes]
Jerry Ray [Jerome Rhea]
