(Testimony of Mrs. Marguerite Oswald Resumed)

Mrs. Oswald.
out that the Book Depository Building--Mr. Lane has this information--it is owned by the city of Dallas--I should not go into that, I don't know. He has all of this information. Or it is a lease. It is government-owned some way or other. I should not say. Mr. Lane has all of this. We have been investigating night and day.
The Chairman.
Well, we have the picture, Mrs. Oswald.
Mrs. Oswald.
All right. On the picture, then--and I have talked to Mr. Doyle about this--you might think I am crazy to say so. The first thing I saw in this picture this picture was sent to me by a woman with a letter telling me to look at the picture carefully. I did not read the letter, I did not want her opinion, or other people's opinion about this picture. We have a lot of comments about this picture. I immediately looked at the picture when I opened it. The first thing I saw was my son Lee and Marina and the child. Then when I called this woman long distance, I said, "You want to know what I saw in the picture?" and I told her. She says, "No, that is not what I see."
Representative Ford.
Did you say your first reaction was that you saw Lee, Marina and the child?
Mrs. Oswald.
That was my first reaction. And, if I am correct--I don't say I am correct--but if I am correct, this would be the solution. Lee was escorted out of the building. Kennedy is shot now--I will have to show you the picture. He has passed the window where Lee's rifle is supposed to be. And he is shot in the neck. He has passed this particular part. He is shot in the neck. And then this man that I think is Lee and I wish I could swear "to it, but I am fully convinced--is being escorted out of the building and could be escorted--I am speculating, sir--I have no proof of this. I wish I did. Could be escorted out of the building by a policeman.
Mr. Rankin.
Is the picture you are looking at the one you referred to?
Mrs. Oswald.
Yes, sir, it is--Exhibit 203.
Mr. Rankin.
That is Exhibit 203?
Mrs. Oswald.
Now, this is who I think Lee is.
Mr. Rankin.
That is
Mrs. Oswald.
There is no face.
Mr. Rankin.
That is the man right in the doorway?
Mrs. Oswald.
Yes, sir. This is Lee's build and everything. The first thing I saw.
Now, they think this is Lee. No, sir, I do not.
Everybody thinks this is Lee.
Mr. Rankin.
When you say they think--it is the man leaning against the side of the doorway, is that right?
Mrs. Oswald.
Yes. That is the picture that everybody is convinced is Lee.
Mr. Rankin.
And you think it is the one next to him that doesn't show any face? It shows the arms over the head?
Mrs. Oswald.
He has his arms up in the air.
Now, that is what I saw immediately--against everybody else seeing it. And this woman and child could possibly be Marina.
Now, to explain this--whether I thought Lee shot Officer Tippit or not---Lee could be escorted out of this building with a gun in his back possibly. I am just speculating, sir. But there is a lot of speculation in this case all over the world. From foreign countries I have letters. And that is how he got out of the building. And this same officer could have been killed, because he was involved in this, and then he could have been killed, to be kept quiet. There is a possibility of this, gentlemen.
Mr. Rankin.
Mrs. Oswald, will you take this blue pencil and carefully mark on Exhibit 203?
Mrs. Oswald.
I don't mean to be telling this Commission what to do. And I cannot do it. But I would like to have this picture printed. And I am willing--I have some few dollars--I have been selling some pictures. I am willing to give a reward of $1,000 if this picture can be printed and these people come it would have to be Secret Service, FBI, and state their names.
I would like to have the people here let us find out who those people are.
