award to Burnham Date: Mon, 29 Apr 2013 15:56:22 -0700 (PDT) From: clapperton mavhunga <firstname.lastname@example.org> Reply-To: clapperton mavhunga <email@example.com> To: H-NET List for African History and Culture <H-AFRICA@H-NET.MSU.EDU> The word is "CANCELLED," even though "deferred" sounds diplomatic. The next time the ANC needs to avoid making such "mistakes."
