The letter cannot be found in the Russell Archives and is assumed not to have arrived; likewise Hougham's own letter.

"Russell replies to a correspondent who is opposed to the apartheid regime in South Africa but who is equally opposed to violent forms of struggle." (Dear BR, note, p. 87)

BR does "not believe anti-apartheid organisations should dissociate themselves from nationalist movements advocating violence." "... it is very difficult to stop violence once it begins." BR instances Algeria. Yet it is not "for those of us not faced with conditions such as those which obtain in South Africa to determine the form of struggle."

The document described is in the black bound printer's copy of the typescript for Dear BR.
