(Testimony of Mrs. Donald Gibson)

Mrs. Gibson.
have meant in all, meaning putting all your days together, because I never would have said 2 weeks meaning a solid period of time of 2 weeks.
Mr. Jenner.
I think that is about all. I neglected to do this, Mrs. Gibson. You received a letter from Mr. Rankin, did you not?
Mrs. Gibson.
Yes; I did.
Mr. Jenner.
General counsel for the Commission, with which he enclosed a copy of the legislation, Senate Joint Resolution 137, authorizing the creation of this Commission?
Mrs. Gibson.
Mr. Jenner.
A copy of President Johnson's Executive Order No. 11130 which created the Commission?
Mrs. Gibson.
Mr. Jenner.
And fixed its scope and its powers and its duties and responsibilities, which in general are to investigate the circumstances surrounding leading up to, and involving the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy?
Mrs. Gibson.
Mr. Jenner.
And, also, a copy of the rules and regulations of the Commission under which depositions are taken?
Mrs. Gibson.
Mr. Jenner.
And you understand from all those papers that the Commission is interviewing people who had, fortunately, or unfortunately, touched the life of Lee Harvey Oswald and others?
Mrs. Gibson.
Mr. Jenner.
And we had understood and as has now been revealed you did have a connection with or some connection with the Oswalds?
Mrs. Gibson.
Mr. Jenner.
Which you have now elucidated.

I am Albert E. Jenner, Jr., one of the members of the legal staff of the Commission, and Mr. Mosk, who was present earlier, likewise is a member. Now, having in mind the objects and purposes and duties of the Commission, is there anything that occurs to you that you would like to add that you think would be helpful to the Commission in its investigation of this subject?
Mrs. Gibson.
Mr. Jenner.
All right, that is all I have, and I appreciate very much your coming here today. I know it is a considerable inconvenience.
