FBI Section 95 N-1 Letters to Jim Jones

N-1, which is the third of four folders in FBI Section 95, is labelled in the Guyana Index as “Letters to Jim Jones” and consists of 243 pages.

The listing below is complete for this section of the FBI’s FOIA release. The complete PDF for this section as released by the FBI is here.

The citation for these documents should open with the FBI’s official designation of these records, which is “RYMUR 89-4286.” Each individual page in these records has a unique number. Page 78 of this document, for example, is marked “N1-A-43a”. The complete citation for that page, then, would be “RYMUR 89-4286-N1-A-43a”.

These letters break down into several categories. The biggest comprise the descriptions of how people would handle the traitors and enemies who have bedeviled Jones. A related category are the letters describing how the Temple could exact retribution against those who killed Chris Lewis, a Temple member who was murdered in San Francisco in December 1977. In addition are scattered reports, self-analyses and biographical statements.
