(Testimony of Lt. Jack Revill)

Mr. Revill.
No, sir; because this happened on the same day.
The Chairman.
Should that file have included this?
Mr. Revill.
No, sir; it didn't. There were only two pieces made of it, one copy and the original made of this.
The Chairman.
I see. What I am getting at, when the department sent their reports to us, did they send copies of this file that Exhibit 709 is in?
Mr. Revill.
The Lee Harvey Oswald file?
The Chairman.
Yes.
Mr. Revill.
I don't believe they did, because much of this is, pertains to newspaper articles, and information that we picked up such as leads where Ruby and Oswald were seen together, we ran all these things down, and then we would make a report of the lead, or the findings, and a copy of it would go in their files.
The Chairman.
I see.
Mr. Revill.
But this one here, was not placed in that book?
Mr. Dulles.
In the original of Commission Exhibit No. 709 that you have just given us prior to the notary public's inscription, subscription to it, there is red ink underlining of Lee Harvey Oswald and James Hosty. When was that put on this copy?
Mr. Revill.
I don't know, sir. Captain Gannaway must have done that because he had the thing and then later gave it to me. Now, the reason for it being underlined, I don't know. On the original--yes; I do.
Mr. Dulles.
Would that be for filing purposes?
Mr. Revill.
Yes, sir; I do. Normally we retain the original copy of every report for our file copy, but I did not have the file copy or the original report so our clerk in indexing this underscored the name and the address and she made cards for the index files.
Mr. Dulles.
That was a card, also, under the file of James Hosty?
Mr. Revill.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Dulles.
His name is also underlined in red?
Mr. Revill.
His name indexed; yes, sir.
Mr. Dulles.
In your original copy of Exhibit 709?
Mr. Revill.
No, sir; not the original copy, because the original.
Mr. Dulles.
The carbon copy, excuse me, the carbon copy of 709.
Mr. Revill.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Dulles.
And I assume that Commission's Exhibit No. 709 which is a photostat is a photostat of the original rather than of the carbon copy?
Mr. Revill.
Yes, sir; and I don't know who made the photostat, I did not. I assume Chief Curry had it made.
Mr. Rankin.
Mr. Reporter, we are giving the number 838 to the carbon copy of Exhibit 709 that Lieutenant Revill has just produced.
The Chairman.
You propose to take a photostat of this and return this report to the lieutenant?
Mr. Rankin.
If we may, Mr. Chief Justice, this is the only copy that I have.
The Chairman.
You should have it back.
Mr. Revill.
That is fine.
The Chairman.
We will take a photostat and return this to you then.
Mr. Revill.
I appreciate that.
The Chairman.
It may be admitted in that manner.
(The document referred to was marked Commission Exhibit No. 838 for identification, and received in evidence.)
The Chairman.
I think that is all. Thank you, again, lieutenant.
Mr. Revill.
I will attempt to find out on that address, and I shall let Mr. Sorrels know, with Secret Service.
Mr. Rankin.
Yes; that will be fine.
The Chairman.
Thank you.

V. J. Brian

Testimony of V. J. Brian

The Chairman.
Come right in, sir. Detective Brian, the purpose of today's hearing is to hear the testimony of Lieutenant Revill and yourself with particular regard to an alleged conversation with Special Agent James P. Hosty, Jr.
