    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am one of the daughters of Mr Max Edralin who I believe was your guest speaker in 2005 (I didn’t see your archive go that far though). He was invited to speak about press freedom and he talked about his time back during his day as a journalist where he and 4 others opted to go to jail to protect the source of an investigation which became a celebrated case in the early ’60s. My Dad is turning 90 this year and he is writing his book. He would like to ask if you have a copy of that speech that he gave to your press club.

    You may reach me on my email or call me through viber or WhatsApp at +34679673263.

    Hope you’re all keeping safe.

    Kind regards,

    Linds Edralin Boughton
