Dear Mr McGuinness
As you are aware the past thirty days of being on hunger-strike are starting to take their effect on my health. Perhaps the most serious effect at the moment is the my body's core temperature has dropped to fifteen degrees thus bringing me closer to going into hypothermia.
I would like to make a public request to meet with you in person. To minimise any inconvenience to you I will travel to Derry on Thursday to facilitate our meeting.
On your part you need only give me the time and location and I will be there.
