(Testimony of Bernard William , Accompanied By Weissman)

Mr. Dulles.
Afternoon Session

Testimony of Bernard William Weissman Resumed

Mr. Dulles.
The President's Commission reconvened at 2:45 p.m.
(The Chairman and Mr. DULLES being present.)
The Chairman.
The Commission will be in order. You may proceed.
Mr. Jenner.
Thank you, Mr. Chief Justice.
Whereupon, Bernard Weissman was recalled as a witness and having been previously duly sworn, testified further as follows:
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. Chief Justice, during the luncheon hour Mr. Weissman has afforded us an opportunity to examine some of this correspondence, to which he made reference this morning. I have selected a few of these pieces of correspondence as rounding out the genesis of CUSA and its affiliate, AMBUS, and the infiltration of the rightist organizations in Dallas that the witness described.
I will identify these without reading from them, as some of them are rather lengthy.
The Chairman.
Very well.
Mr. Jenner.
First, Mr. Weissman, I have a letter on the letterhead of National Indignation Convention, the top of which has scrawled in ink longhand "Top Secret." It is a five-page longhand letter. At the bottom of each is written the word "Destroy." I have marked an envelope postmarked Dallas, Tex., on November 5, 1962, as Commission Exhibit No. 1048, the first exhibit being identified as Commission Exhibit No. 1047.
(The documents referred to were marked respectively Commission Exhibits Nos. 1047 and 1048 for identification.)
Mr. Jenner.
The envelope is addressed to SP-4 Larry Jones, APO Station 407, New York, N.Y.
Mr. Weissman.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Do you recognize the handwriting on the envelope?
Mr. Weissman.
Yes; that is Larrie's.
Mr. Jenner.
And the Larry Jones is the man to whom you made reference in your testimony?
Mr. Weissman.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
The document Commission Exhibit No. 1047, do you recognize that handwriting?
Mr. Weissman.
It appears to be Larrie's.
Mr. Jenner.
Do you recognize it?
Mr. Weissman.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
And was document Commission Exhibit No. 1047. enclosed in the envelope marked Commission Exhibit No. 1048?
Mr. Dulles.
Is there any signature on those documents?
Mr. Weissman.
This page should be last.
Mr. Jenner.
On the page which is marked with a circle 7, there appears to be a signature L-a-r-r-l-e. Do you recognize that signature?
Mr. Weissman.
That is Larrie Schmidt's signature.
Mr. Jenner.
How did you come into possession of the documents now identified, one of which was addressed to Larry Jones rather than you?
Mr. Weissman.
Larry Jones gave it to me.
Mr. Jenner.
Where?
Mr. Weissman.
In Munich, Germany.
Mr. Jenner.
And when he handed the document to you was Exhibit No. 1047 enclosed in Exhibit No. 1048?
Mr. Weissman.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Next is a three-page letter dated Dallas, Tex., January 4, 1963, typewritten, addressed to "Dear Bernie." Is that you?
Mr. Weissman.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
Marked as Commission Exhibit No. 1040.
(The document referred to was marked Commission Exhibit No. 1040 for identification.)
Mr. Jenner.
It is signed in typing "Larrie."
