MANSAdenw:

Susan McIntosh has sent the following message with additional =20
information about our loss of Tereba Togola.

After she wrote this for circulation, she discovered the prohibitive =20
cost of sending money via Western Union, and decided to send her =20
check to me, which I will convert to Travelers Cheques and hand over =20
to Tereba's family (they're easy to cash in Bamako). So if any of you =20=

wish to send something, you also have that option. I leave for =20
Conakry on December 6th, and will go on from there overland to =20
Bamako. David
