(Testimony of Curtis Laverne Crafard Resumed)

Mr. Crafard.
No; I don't.
Mr. Hubert.
Have you ever talked to any other member of the Commission
staff than Mr. Griffin and myself?
Mr. Crafard.
Mr. Hubert.
Do you feel that considering your testimony and various exhibits that you have identified that we have all you know about the matter that the Commission is investigating?
Mr. Crafard.
Mr. Hubert.
And that is, the death of President Kennedy, and the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald, and Ruby's connection therewith.
Mr. Crafard.
Mr. Griffin.
I want to thank you for coming here and spending these 3 days with us, and I believe that concludes the deposition.

Wilbyrn Waldon (Robert) Litchfield II

The testimony of Wilbyrn Waldon (Robert) Litchfield II was taken at 1:35 p.m., on April 16, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. Leon D. Hubert, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Hubert.
This will be the deposition of Mr. Wilbyrn Litchfield, II----
Mr. Litchfield.
When I sign, I sign "W. W. (Bob) II,--does that need to be in there?
Mr. Hubert.
You can bring that out later when I ask you more about your name.
Mr. Litchfield, my name is Leon Hubert. I am a member of the advisory staff of the General Counsel of the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, under the provisions of Executive Order 11130, dated November 29, 1963, and Joint Resolution of Congress No. 137, and the rules of procedure adopted by the Commission in conformance with the Executive order and the joint resolution, and I have been authorized to take a sworn deposition of you.
I state to you now that the general nature of the Commission's inquiry is to ascertain, evaluate, and report on the facts relating to the assassination of President Kennedy and the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald.
In particular as to you, Mr. Litchfield, the nature of the inquiry today is to determine what facts you know or may know about the death of Oswald, or any other facts you may know about the general inquiry, or, about the possible connection, if any, of Jack Ruby with the death of Oswald or the death of President Kennedy.
I think you have appeared here by virtue of a letter--written request made to you?
Mr. Litchfield.
Mr. Hubert.
You didn't receive a letter to come?
Mr. Litchfield.
Sorrels called me long distance.
Mr. Hubert.
Well, I must advise you then that under the rules established by the Warren Commission, to govern the procedure of handling witnesses and So forth, every witness is entitled to a 3-day written notice that we wish to take his deposition, but those rules also provide that if a witness wishes to, he may waive that 3-day notice and just go ahead and testify now. So, I ask you now whether you are willing to waive the 3-day notice and proceed to testify now?
Mr. Litchfield.
Mr. Hubert.
Will you stand and I will administer the oath.
Do you solemnly swear the testimony you are about to give will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Litchfield.
I do.
