Mrs. Anne Boudreaux, 831 Pauline Street, New Orleans, La., after first being duly sworn, testified as follows:

Mr. Jenner.
You are Mrs. Anne Boudreaux, is that right?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And your husband's name is Edward?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
That's right.
Mr. Jenner.
Mrs. Boudreaux, you received a letter from the general counsel of the Commission, did you not?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes, I did.
Mr. Jenner.
In which was enclosed a copy of Senate Joint Resolution 137, which authorized the creation of the Commission to investigate the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, is that right?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes; I have the letter with me.
Mr. Jenner.
And the order of Lyndon B. Johnson, the President of the United States, bringing the Commission into existence and fixing its powers and duties?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
And a copy of our rules and regulations under which we take testimony before the Commission and also by way of deposition, such as this one?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
All right. I therefore take it you understand from those documents that the Commission was authorized and appointed to investigate all the facts and circumstances surrounding the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy on the 22d of November 1963?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
I am Albert E. Jenner, Jr., member of the legal staff, of the Commission, and I would like to inquire of you a little bit to see if you can't give us some information that will help the Commission in its investigation.
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
We are seeking to elicit from those who came into contact with Lee Harvey Oswald and his brothers and his mother and others, information that may be helpful to the Commission in its work, and the Commission very much appreciates your coming down here today, because these are always a little inconvenient, of course.
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
All right. Now, Mrs. Boudreaux, you live at 831 Pauline Street, is that right?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
How long have you lived at 831 Pauline?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Since 1932--no, I beg your pardon, 1942; since June 15, 1942.
Mr. Jenner.
1942, rather than 1932?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes, that's right. I wasn't thinking right.
Mr. Jenner.
By the way, are you a native of this part of the country?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes, I am.
Mr. Jenner.
You were born here and reared here?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
I was born in Louisiana, yes.
Mr. Jenner.
And your husband?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
My husband too.
Mr. Jenner.
And you have a family?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes, I do.
Mr. Jenner.
How many children?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
I have five children.
Mr. Jenner.
What are their ages, Mrs. Boudreaux?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
22, 17, two 16's, and one 11.
Mr. Jenner.
Two 16's?
