    Initials


    I regret I didn't receive your cable saying this was an "unwant" until I returned to Ndola today -- I had hitch-hiked over to Kitwe yesterday afternoon because of the petrol shortage and was uncontactable. Sorry, but this coverage may be useful library material as it's in colour.
    Coverage is accompanied by 1/4 in. wild tape (wound tail out) of sounds identified on next sheet.
