Including: copies of correspondence by Rusty Bernstein from the Pretoria Central Prison, requesting the Department of Justice to grant permission to communicate with Toni Bernstein, 2-31 March 1964 (note that the date on the first letter is the 2 March 1963, which must have been written in error, given that Rusty Bernstein was only arrested in July 1963). Prisoner's Property Receipt dated 11 June 1964, issued to Lionel Bernstein.


Also included are transcriptions for cloth pieces numbered 1-8, done by daughter Frances; cloth pieces numbered 1a-5a have not been transcribed yet. The messages contain no dates, but some give an indication of a day; they have therefor not been numbered in any particular sequence, pages 1-23.
