(Testimony of Robert Edward Oswald Lee Resumed)

Mr. Jenner.
Would. you please tell me what you said to him?
Mr. Oswald.
That to the best of my recollection, that this duplex was located across the street from the side of Montgomery Ward located on West 7th Street in Fort Worth, Tex., approximately three or four blocks from West 7th Street.
Mr. Mckenzie.
Mr. Chairman, you have greatly inconvenienced yourself this evening and accommodated both myself and Mr. Oswald for which we thank you.
However, it is now 16 or 17 minutes of 8 o'clock in the evening, and Mr. Oswald has been testifying here for, to the best way I can----
Mr. Dulles.
It will be 12 hours pretty soon, 11 hours.
Mr. Mckenzie.
Approximately 11 hours and by the same token Mr. Jenner has been questioning him for a like period of time, with the exception of the few questions you have asked and the few questions I have asked, and I submit maybe we should start again in the morning.
And I likewise say that he is perfectly willing to go forward but I do know that you have plans and if we can meet----
Mr. Dulles.
We will have to do it tomorrow.
Mr. Mckenzie.
We can be here at 8:30, if it will suit the Commission's----
(Discussion off the record.)
Mr. Dulles.
9:30 tomorrow morning.
And we will adjourn at 11 o'clock, come hell or high water. (Whereupon, at 7:45 p.m., the President's Commission recessed.)
Mr. Dulles.

Testimony of Robert Edward Oswald Lee Resumed

Mr. Dulles.
The President's Commission met at 10 a.m. on February 22, 1964, at 200 Maryland Avenue NE., Washington, D.C.
Present was Allen W. Dulles, member.
Also present were Albert Jenner, assistant counsel; and William McKenzie, attorney for Robert Edward Lee Oswald.
Mr. Dulles.
The Commission will come to order. We will continue the hearing of Mr. Robert Oswald.
Mr. Jenner.
Thank you, sir.
Have you now recited for us all of the occasions on which any agent of the FBI called or visited with you prior to November 22, 1963?
Mr. Oswald.
Yes, sir; I have.
Mr. Dulles.
And your answer would include any other Government investigatory bodies, would it? I mean you didn't have the Secret Service at this time?
Mr. Mckenzie.
In answer to your question, Mr. Jenner, and to Mr. Dulles' further question, Robert has told me there was one other agency that he does recall at this time.
Mr. Jenner.
Why don't we have him recite it, and then see if it is pertinent.
Or, may I suggest, Mr. Chairman, we might go off the record and see what it was.
Mr. Mckenzie.
It was Immigration and Naturalization.
Mr. Jenner.
Fix the date, please. Excuse me.
There was one other Government agency that interviewed you?
Mr. Oswald.
That is correct.
Mr. Jenner.
Would you give the time, please?
Mr. Oswald.
To the best of my recollection, this was approximately January or February of 1962, at my residence in Fort Worth, Tex., approximately 7 o'clock or 7:30 p.m. The gentleman had called my home from Dallas, Tex.
