(Testimony of M. F. , Sr. Tobias)

Mr. Jenner.
are any errors in it, that you want to correct, you correct them, but you aren't giving to refuse to sign it, are you?
Mr. Tobias.
No; I don't imagine I will.
Mrs. Tobias.
Do you know what he said, Mr. Jenner?
Mr. Jenner.
Mrs. Tobias.
We got this letter and he said, "I thought we was going to get around this Warren Commission--I didn't think we were going to have to go before the Warren Commission."
Is this going to be the .end of it or is there still going to be some more?
Mr. Jenner.
Well, I can't tell you whether it will be the end of it or not.
Mrs. Tobias.
Well, we may go from here that letter said any place in the United States and if it did we would have to go; okay?
Mr. Jenner.
That's right. If you have to come to Washington, your transportation will be paid.
Mr. Tobias.
That's all right, but just make it summertime.
Mrs. Tobias.
Well, of course we will be glad to come.
Mr. Jenner.
All right, thank you both for coming.
