Mary Lou Clancy letters, Aug/Sept 1977


[Handwritten letter]

August 20, 1977

Dear Mary Lou –

How are you? I hope you found everything O.K. when you arrived. Our chief concern is your safety, so I can assure you that we are watching every minute and your Uncle Joe has his attorney also in the act. George Moscone, [can’t read] and many people there are also very interested. You see, I was absolutely floored when I read the papers. That is not my concern — your safety is!

It would be to Jimmy Jones advantage to send Mary Lou Clancy home.

Take care —

Love from
Auntie Fran + Joe [illegible last name]

[Handwritten letter]

Sept. 14, 1977

San Francisco Mayor George Moscone

Dear Sir,

My name is Marylou Clancy and I am currently living at Peoples Temple Agricultural Mission in Guyana, S.A. I received recently a letter from my aunt, Mrs. Joseph P. [illegible last name], in which your name was mentioned and it may be of interest to you. (copy enclosed.)

I wish to state that I am 23 yrs. old, I have been married for the past 4 years, and I would greatly appreciate it if my aunt would stop attempting to interfere with my personal life. This letter is an example of the same type of harrassment that has been aimed toward Jim Jones and Peoples Temple in recent months.

I lived previously in Ukiah, California and worked there at the Ukiah Health Dept. and as a Community Health Aide for 3 yrs. I have found great fulfillment here at the Agricultural Mission and I have no intentions of leaving in the near future. Thank you for your time and attention.


Marylou Clancy
