Editorial comments:

The ordering of the pages is conjectural. The first two pages would appear to have been written just after the event as a fair(er) copy/summary of the remaining four pages, which were probably jotted down in the meeting. A transcript by the editor is interleaved for the sake of readers. Read all documents from the 1989 release of MT's party and personal papers.
