Editorial comments:

Dated 'Sunday'; listed as 5 Nov by reference to Turnbill minute for MT, 8 Nov 1989 which refers to Walters calling t No.10 to clear his desk and collecting the letter at the time. The previous Sunday was 5 November. The document is a photocpy on US sized paper. The original is not in the files, nor did MT keep a copy in her files, something that tended only to occur when she handled papers personally. Transcript by site editor interleaved with letter for convenience of readers. Read all documents from the 1989 release of MT's party and personal papers.
