Henrietta Thompson's notes on Jack Belden. These notes seem to be a combination of Thompson’s memories of meeting Belden and perhaps a summary of Belden's account of an argument that took place at the start of the Walkout; several of Thompson's interviewees mentioned this argument that revolved around the suggestion, by one or some of the Americans, that they leave some of the group behind in order to expedite their own escape from Burma.
