(Testimony of Mrs. Marguerite Oswald Resumed)

Mrs. Oswald.
Yes, sir.
This is a Mother's Day card sent .to me from Santa Ana, California on May 7, 1959 from Lee.
Mr. Rankin.
That is Exhibit 266?
Mrs. Oswald.
And this is Exhibit 268 which is a Christmas card I had sent Lee on his first Christmas away from home he joined in October--that Lee had kept all these years in his sea bag, this was found in his sea bag he left with me.
This is a book of Christmas carols Exhibit 269 that was also found in Lee's sea bag.
Mr. Rankin.
Now, Exhibits 259 to 269 both inclusive, are those all of the pictures that you were offering the Commission this morning?
Mrs. Oswald.
I have many more pictures, I would be happy to show you but these are the pictures that your Mr. Jennet said he would like to have for the Commission.
Mr. Rankin.
And that you were referring to when you offered them to the Commission?
Mrs. Oswald.
Mr. Rankin.
Thank you very much and we would like to return them to you at this time.
The Chairman.
We will return them to you, Mrs. Oswald.
Mr. Rankin.
That is all I have, Mr. Chairman.
The Chairman.
Well I think that will be all then. Thank you Mrs. Oswald and if you become too tired with your testimony, we know it has been a long and arduous task for you, but we appreciate your presence. Now, Mr. Doyle.
Mr. Doyle.
Sorry for the interruption, sir. Mrs. Oswald, do you care to make any comment to the Commission about the tape recording, the transcript of the tape recording of Mrs. Marguerite Oswald furnished to you by the Commission this morning? Do you care to make any comment about that?
Mrs. Oswald.
Should I go all the way and make the comment?
Mr. Doyle.
You make any comment you desire on that paper. I ask you whether or not you have any comment to make concerning that paper that you sent, that you were given?
Mrs. Oswald.
I am concerned about one thing, Mr. Doyle, if I may just step over there and ask you a question.
The Chairman.
You may step out in the hall and talk to Mr. Doyle.
Mrs. Oswald.
Chief Justice Warren and Mr. Rankin, I have read this and it has upset me very, very much, that is what I was upset about. I have stated before in my testimony that at the end of the Six Flags I insisted upon going home and getting my important papers and I was ignored.
I wanted to testify. They put Robert on tape many a time and Marina continuously and I didn't have an interview. I have stated this previously, if you remember, and then finally a Mr. Howard put me on tape for about 5 or 10 minutes only, sir, and I had started with the defection because I was under the impression that we missed a bet when we didn't find out how Lee got to Russia and as far as I know, no reporter has been able to find out what ship he left on, and then Robert left the bedroom because he had the news that we could not get a minister, if you recall, and cried, and I said to Mr. Howard "Now all that I have left me because I see my son crying bitterly." I have stated these facts before, a very short interview.
This interview is supposed to have been by Mr. Howard, sir. The same Mr. Mike Howard that I have previously identified before on many occasions, and I swear before this Committee that now my life is more in danger which I have said before, because I did not give this testimony. This is the testimony that has been gathered by known facts because I have been a public figure.
I have had three press conferences, I have written for magazines and newspapers. I have not kept quiet, sir, as you know, so these things have been accumulated. I was not questioned and answered, sir. I have stated it before and I state it now. This is the same man who was sent to me in Fort Worth, Tex. that I have complained that I did not get protection, if you will recall. This is the very same man, sir. This is the same man that I have told you that gave my daughter-in-law a red-carpet treatment if you will recall along
