Interview with Lawrence Guyot
QUESTION 39
INTERVIEWER:

OK. LET ME JUST, LET'S GO THROUGH THAT JUST ONE MORE TIME. I THINK THAT WHAT'S NOT CLEAR IS THE FACT THAT THE… ALL THE DELEGATES HAD VOTED TO TURN DOWN THE COMPROMISE. THAT'S NOT CLEAR IN WHAT YOU SAID.

Lawrence Guyot:

OK, OK. Ready? Mrs. Hamer described a meeting to me between herself, Aaron Henry, and Ed King in which Aaron Henry and Ed King proposed to Mrs. Hamer that the three of them, after the convention delegation had voted not to accept the compromise, that they simply go out to the press and announce that the delegation had accepted the compromise at last and the convention could move on with this business. Mrs. Hamer could not allow that. I believe that her description of the meeting was accurate and uh, I of course wasn't there.
