Handwritten letter to Sister Majella from Ken Saro-Wiwa regarding his detention, stating 'I had no access to newspapers or radio, and I was in chains - which was quite depressing. The chains now sit on my table, a reminder that they can go on at any time.' Refers to his conditions in detention, stating 'My condition is not very bad. I have an air-conditioned room to myself, and the electricity has only failed once. I can write and only yesterday succeeded in smuggling my computer into this place. I can cook (though I cannot cook) for myself and from time to time, I can smuggle out letters', stating also 'The only thing is that family members, lawyers and doctor are not allowed to see me. The military doctor came just once and wrote a recommendation that I be sent to the University Teaching Hospital. The Military Administrator has ignored the recommendation which makes me believe that he wants me dead.' Also makes reference to reading the bible, his collection of essays and other written work, and his own future, noting ' there are a lot more difficulties ahead. However, I believe that I've done what God wanted me to, and have spared nothing to achieve his will. He will have to decide what happens to me. Incarceration is nothing. I must expect more of it, and even death. But I do want to live to help re-create Ogoni society.'
