Documents on the October Crisis

Message of Mrs Cross to her Husband and the FLQ

Read on radio station CKLM on October 28, 1970.

More than one week has passed since I have had news of you. I think constantly of you, and you must know that I wish nothing but for you to be back safe and sound. The waiting is atrocious but I am confident that you are alive and well.

It was a great comfort to me to have been able to read your letter and to have know in which direction your thoughts have gone throughout this period of separation. Your letters have given me hope that we will soon be together again. I hope that the FLQ will continue to let you write to me. Susie and I think of you constantly and you must know all the love that we have for you.

I beg of you to free my husband without delay.
