South Africa: MT notes (remarks at lunch with Mandela?) ["All lasting solutions are grown solutions .... There is a new generation not caught up in the outdated Marxist shibboleths of the ANC"] [declassified Dcr 2018]

Editorial comments:

Undated; estimated as 3 July. The notes were made on the reverse of a letter MT she seems to have received on 3 July. The style suggests jottings for an off the cuff speech. MT met Nelson Mandela for the first time on 4 July, 1200-1515, which included a working lunch. View other documents selected from this file. View the full file.
