Warning: the tape, this summary, and the transcript contain obscenities. This is a summary of the 1976 audio excerpt in this collection in which Jim Jones coaches members of his Peoples Temple as to the exact terms of their responses to the press in an upcoming interview. No summary was provided by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation, who had retrieved the tape from Jonestown as part of their inquiry into the assassination of Congressman Leo J. Ryan on November 18, 1978. The summary of the entire tape, including part 5 here, was prepared by Fielding M. McGehee III of the Jonestown Institute and is available on the Institute's Web site along with the whole sound file from the original tape and a transcript by McGehee. The title here was also provided by McGehee.
