30 July 80 Letter John Ormowe to P about Private Eye article about Clarendon Club meeting.

I supposed, if pressed, you can always say that you were simply invited to address several dinners of the C Club....'

- Invitation to the meeting identifies Faurisson as the principal speaker. 'The theme of his talk will be 'the Myth of the Gas Chambers'. Leuchter was due to attend (it says), but was banned by the Home Secretary and would address the meeting via a video.
- There is film of part of the meeting. Transcript of part of P's introduction (including that his new edition of Hitler's War did not mention the Holocaust 'If something didn't happen, then you don't even dignify it with a footnote.')
- P diary entry: "I introduced Faurisson, who spoke academically and painstakingly, frightening the audience out of the wits. Then I said 'Boy have we got a treat for you', read out a spoof letter from 'the Home Secretary' and announced that we had Fred Leuchter here, despite the ban. Standing ovation for poor Fred. He too began painstakingly and slowly, with the result that he was only 15 minutes into his speech when disaster struck...'
