The mailing reports that after her release Gloria expressed great joy over the many letters she received while in Pollsmore Women's Prison. The mailing includes an item on recent detainees (Louis Mnguni, Pupu Mgwangqa, and Titus Mafolo). The mailing says Mnguni is Acting President of the United Democratic Front (UDF) Northern Transvaal region; Mgwangqa is an Anglican Youthworker in the Mlungisi location in the Stutterheim area and that the rector of his parish the Revd. Lulama Ntshinga who is being detained at Grootvlei Prison was detained and released; and Mafolo was very active in organizations under the leadership of Steve Biko and is presently a member of the national executive of the UDF. The mailing gives address to write to the prisoners. The mailing includes information on the South African Political Prisoners' Support Network.
