McGehee III, Fielding M.
This is a transcript of an excerpt from a 1974 sermon by Jim Jones. The excerpt is located at the beginning of the recording. The full transcript, from which this excerpt was drawn, was prepared by Fielding M. McGehee III and is posted on the Jonestown Institute's Web site along with the sound file. Here, Jones declares that he intends to "shake the whole creation," that "every time they touch us, we're going to fight." The original tape was retrieved by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation as part of their "investigation into the assassination of U.S. Congressman Leo J. Ryan..." The title and caption here were provided by Fielding M. McGehee III.
