We had a letter from Daisy at Columbia (DC10) that if not already part
of this collection, should be.  She wrote it for us at very short
notice, in support of Nicaragua.

I seem to have somehow allowed the copy I got to be deleted here -- I
think it got mis-classified as spam, and I've since dropped a lot of the
contents of that folder, but Richard Darst had a copy, and I think it
ended up in SVN.

Cheers, Phil.
