This agent told me that, at tho moment, theyU.S. at their disposal but gave me no explanation aa to itshowever, lamglne that it comes from. source, since neitherYDIGORAS havo that ouch or would spend it inanner. Tho curiousthat the "conches" are so stingy with your operation. We can do nowe distribute the Bulletin for which we recolvo no compensationcontrary, we spend the few cents necessary to carry out the distributionsituation Is precarious, for there is the constant risk of being sent toto the cemetery. It would be all right if everything looked as thoughsucceed, but we are not so sure; people ask us for something tangibledeserting to the other aide because they arc hungry-Haany solve theirthat fashion. On the other hand, we remain with those who have believedof the Comite, for thus we interpret the Bulletin and you have told aels, that you will be the future leaders.

We received numbersndf tha Bulletinthey are fine and we await the next copies for distribution, while our bodies waste away and those degenerates throw ua in jail. Wo must talk frankly; the solid castle ue had built isto dust and the people lose faith. Tell ua if tangible aid lit to cotco or not.
