(Testimony of Robert L. Norton)

Mr. Hubert.
And then did you have anything else you wished to say?
Mr. Norton.
And then 2 or 3 days later I received a letter or a note--it was in a letter form, and it was addressed to Anice and Bob, that's my manager's name, and she opened it and it was from Jack Ruby.
Mr. Hubert.
From the jail?
Mr. Norton.
From the jail.
Mr. Hubert.
What did it say?
Mr. Norton.
Simply--"thank you for your"--something like "your concern"-I guess she took it to him. It wasn't sent to him, we didn't send it to him, but I surmised that she just told him about it or something and he sent this little note back and wished us luck.
Mr. Hubert.
Do you still have that note?
Mr. Norton.
Yes--I started to throw it away and Anice told me to keep it.
Mr. Hubert.
I would suggest that you hold it a bit. It may well be that the Commission or the Federal Bureau of Investigation will want to look at it, so I would not destroy it if I were you.
I'm glad you came back and told us about this.
Mr. Norton.
Well, I just don't want to be connected with this in any way other than I'm here to help and that's the reason I wanted to come back up here and tell about that, because I hadn't mentioned.
Mr. Hubert.
That's right. You didn't want to be put in the position of having come here and omitted to say something that does bear upon your relationship with Jack Ruby, but which you had not said before?
Mr. Norton.
Mr. Hubert.
All right, I think that's fine. Thank you, sir.
Mr. Norton.
Thank you.

Roy A. Pryor

Testimony of Roy A. Pryor

The testimony of Roy A. Pryor was taken at 7:50 p.m., on June 26, 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 is the deposition of Roy A. Pryor.
Mr. Pryor, my name is Leon Hubert. I am a member of the advisory staff of the general counsel on the President's Commission. Under the provisions of Executive Order 11130, dated November 29, 1963, and the joint resolution of Congress No. 137, and the rules of procedure adopted by the President's Commission in conformante with the Executive order and the joint resolution, I have been authorized to take a sworn deposition from you.
I state to you that the general nature of the Commission's inquiry is to ascertain, evaluate, and report upon the facts relative to the assassination of President Kennedy and the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald.
In particular as to you, Mr. Pryor, the nature of the inquiry today is to determine what facts you know about the death of Oswald and any other pertinent facts you may know about the general inquiry and about Jack Ruby and his operations and movements and so forth.
I think you appeared here tonight by virtue of a letter written to you by Mr. J. Lee Rankin, general counsel of the President's Commission, asking you to come here, and I think that letter is dated the 22d of June, is it not? When did you receive it?
Mr. Pryor.
Day before yesterday, which would be the 24th.
Mr. Hubert.
Under the rules adopted by the Commission, every witness is entitled to a 3-day written notice prior to the taking of his deposition, and the rules also provide that a witness may waive that notice if he sees fit to do so, and in the event it should turn out that you have not had the 3-day notice, are you willing to waive it and let your deposition be taken now?
Mr. Pryor.
That's perfectly all right, sir.
