(Testimony of Robert Edward Oswald Lee Resumed)

Mr. Oswald.
At no residence that he lived in that I was aware of at any time did I see him with a television set that I would take to be his own.
Mr. Jenner.
Did you ever have any discussions--did any discussion ever occur between the two of you with respect to his acquisition of a television set?
Mr. Oswald.
None that I recall, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
This is, as far as you are concerned, a total blank, this television set matter?
Mr. Oswald.
That is correct, sir.
Mr. Dulles.
I think we had better adjourn pretty soon. This man has had quite an ordeal for the day.
Mr. Jenner.
It is acceptable.
Mr. Dulles.
Is it acceptable to you?
The Chairman.
Mr. Oswald.
I have no objection to continuing.
Mr. Mckenzie.
If you would prefer to reconvene tomorrow morning we can reconvene then.
Mr. Rankin.
I think 9 o'clock is better. I think we can finish up in the morning.
Mr. Dulles.
Thank you. At 9 o'clock in the morning.
(Whereupon, at 5:15 p.m., the President's Commission recessed.)
Mr. Dulles.
Friday, February 21, 1964

Testimony of Robert Edward Oswald Lee Resumed

Mr. Dulles.
The President's Commission met at 9 a.m. on February 21, 1964, at 200 Maryland Avenue NE, Washington, D.C.
Present were Chief Justice Earl Warren, Chairman; and Allen W. Dulles, member.
Also present were J. Lee Rankin, general counsel; Albert E. Jenner, Jr., assistant counsel; Wesley J. Liebeler, assistant counsel; and William McKenzie, attorney for Robert Edward Lee Oswald.
The Chairman.
Gentlemen, the Commission will be in order.
As yesterday, I will only be able to be here for a comparatively short time, because we have our weekly conference of the Supreme Court today. And when I leave, Mr. Allen Dulles will conduct the hearing. We will now proceed with the testimony.
Mr. Jenner.
Thank you, Mr. Chief Justice.
I would like to return, Mr. Oswald, to the time that your brother Lee was discharged from military service and spent approximately 3 days at home. You recall that period?
Mr. Oswald.
Yes, sir; I do.
Mr. Jenner.
Now, would you please describe his physical appearance the last time you saw him during that 3-day period?
Mr. Oswald.
His hair was brown and curly, a full set of hair. His physical appearance he was trim, weighed approximately 140 pounds, he was approximately 5 foot 9 1/2, he seemed to be in fine physical shape at that time.
Mr. Jenner.
I mentioned 3 days. Was I wrong about the 3 days, or was it a little longer period?
Mr. Oswald.
No, sir; my recollection on that period was 2 or 3 days, and only during one of these day do I remember seeing him. He spent the day at our house.
Mr. Jenner.
It was your impression, sir, that he was in good health, bright and alert mentally at that time?
