(Testimony of Dr. Charles Francis Gregory)

Mr. Specter.
I regret to say I don't know the gentleman's name, but he too was properly identified.

Mr. SPECTER. And prior to the time when the Court Reporter started to transcribe the deposition which you have been kind enough to provide us with, had you and I been talking about the same subjects which you have answered
questions on all during the course of this deposition?
Mr. SPECTER. And during the time that you first were interviewed by the Secret Service down through the present moment, have you had the same general opinion concerning the matters which you have testified about here today ?
Mr. SPECTER. Do you have anything to add which you think would be helpful in any way to the work of the Commission?
Dr. GREGORY. No; not really. This is the only articulation I have had with this whole episode concerning Governor Connally's wound and his subsequent recovery and none other.
Mr. Specter.
Thank you very much, Dr. Gregory, for coming.
Dr. GREGORY. Very well.

Dr. George T. Shires

Will you rise, please, Dr. Shires and raise your right hand. Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you will give before the President's Commission in this deposition proceeding will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Dr. SHIRES. I do.
