This photograph features Jones holding a cat. A woman stands barefoot behind him facing away from the camera. According to a press release issued in 1974, the Redwood Valley church had "a large animal shelter" on its 60- (or 40-) acre grounds. This image has been color corrected to the extent possible due to overall fading. This photograph is from the "Healings" album in the Peoples Temple Collection. Written on the inside front cover are the names Royal Mershon and Lula Mae Mershon.
