(Testimony of Alice Reaves Nichols)

Mr. Griffin.
Did you know any of the women that he was friendly with besides yourself?
Mrs. Nichols.
I don't know who else he dated.
Mr. Griffin.
How about women that he saw in a business connection? Did you see any women in the business? Did he see any women in a business connection?
Mrs. Nichols.
Not that I know of. I don't know of any.
Mr. Griffin.
Can you think of anything else that we haven't talked about here today that you haven't already told the FBI, that you think would be of importance to the Commission?
Mrs. Nichols.
No; I can't think of anything that would be of importance.
Mr. Griffin.
Let me ask you if, as time passes here, and if anything does come to your attention which you think might be helpful to us, if you would contact somebody in the Commission or contact the FBI or the Secret Service and let them know?
Mrs. Nichols.
I will be glad to.
Mr. Griffin.
We also ask you, other than the interviews that Mr. Sayres had with you, have you been interviewed by any member of this staff?
Mrs. Nichols.
Of this staff?
Mr. Griffin.
Mrs. Nichols.
Mr. Griffin.
Prior to having your deposition taken here, did you and I have any interview?
Mrs. Nichols.
Mr. Griffin.
I don't think I have any more questions to ask you I want to thank you for coming here and taking all this time to do it, and I realize that you are a working woman and it is an inconvenience to you.
Mrs. Nichols.
That is quite all right.
Mr. Griffin.
But it was quite nice of you to spend all of this time.
Mrs. Nichols.
I am glad to help in any way I can.
Mr. Griffin.
Thank you very much.

Carl Patterson

Testimony of Robert Carl Patterson

The testimony of Robert Carl Patterson was taken at 4:15 p.m., on April 14, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. Burt W. Griffin, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Griffin.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Burt Griffin, and I am on the Advisory Staff of the General Counsel's office of the President's Commission investigating the assassination of President Kennedy.
This Commission has been set up by virtue of an Executive Order from President Johnson which was issued on November 30, 1963, and also by virtue of a Joint Resolution from Congress, No. 137.
As a result of these two official Acts, the Commission has 'been given authority to put forth its own rules and regulations to accomplish the purpose of the investigation which we have been asked to conduct, and under these regulations I have been given authority to come here and take your deposition, Mr. Patterson.
I want to explain to you a little bit about what the purpose of the investigation is. The Commission has been asked to investigate, evaluate and report back to President Johnson upon all the facts surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy and the subsequent murder of Lee Harvey Oswald.
We have asked you to come here this particular day, Mr. Patterson, because we understand that you have had some acquaintanceship with Jack Ruby. However, we are interested in anything that you might be able to tell about the assassination of the President or anything that you might think might be relevant to that.
We have a certain set of procedures that we follow in conducting these depositions
