(Testimony of Mrs. Anne Boudreaux)

Mr. Jenner.
Where is 831 Pauline Street with respect to 1012 Bartholomew?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
That would be about 4 blocks, I would say, from where I live.
Mr. Jenner.
From 1012 Bartholomew to where you live would be about 4 blocks?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
Did you learn that she lived at one time at 1010 Bartholomew?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
No; I didn't. I don't know where she lived after she left there.
Mr. Jenner.
Were these rented homes, or could you purchase them?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
The one where I was living?
Mr. Jenner.
Yes.
Mrs. Boudreaux.
They were rented, but now I own my home.
Mr. Jenner.
But they were being rented at that time?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
The former landlady, is she alive?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
No; she's not.
Mrs. Jenner.
She's dead?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes; she's dead.
Mr. Jenner.
Until this tragic event occurred last fall, had you heard of any of the Oswalds from the time they moved away?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
No; I didn't know until the FBI man told me until he got to questioning me, that it was the boy who lived in that house. I didn't realize that until he told me. The only other contact I had--I don't know if it's important or not----
Mr. Jenner.
Well, you let us decide what is important and what isn't. We want to get all the information we can possibly get as to the facts and circumstances surrounding this matter; so you go right ahead.
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Well, I bought the boy's baby bed, and I gave Mrs. Roach the money to pay for it, and she left the bed in the house, and then they never came back for the money, I don't think.
Mr. Jenner.
In advance of moving in, you purchased their baby bed?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes; I bought the bed, which I sail have, and I raised all my children with it.
Mr. Jenner.
Is that right?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes; I raised my five children with it, and I intend to give it to them even though this happened. Like I say, it wasn't concerning them at all.
Mr. Jenner.
Now, these depositions will be written up by the court reporter, and you have the privilege, if you wish, of reading your deposition and signing it, but you can waive that if you want so as to avoid the inconvenience of coming down here again, but if you wish to read it and sign it, that's your privilege. If you decide to waive the reading and signing of the deposition, the court reporter will transcribe it, and it will be sent by the U.S. attorney to Washington to be read by the members of the Commission conducting this investigation.
Mrs. Boudreaux.
I don't need to sign it. All I was saying was the truth, and that's all I can do.
Mr. Jenner.
Then I take it you would just as soon waive the necessity of reading and signing the deposition?
Mrs. Boudreaux.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Very well; thank you very much for appearing here voluntarily and giving us your statement.
