(Testimony of Paul M. Raigorodsky)

Mr. Raigorodsky.
Mr. Jenner.
But all of that is his handwriting?
Mr. Raigorodsky.
Yes; and you see, he has written in here "Oil possibilities Mellon Concession" and "Our Shada Concession."
Mr. Jenner.
What is "Shada"?
Mr. Raigorodsky.
That's where he claims he had the concessions for the hemp.
Mr. Jenner.
For hemp or sisal there?
Mr. Raigorodsky.
Yes; sisal
Mr. Jenner.
These things will all show up on any photostat immediately of this?
Mr. Raigorodsky.
Mr. Jenner.
Now, I state for the record, Mr. Raigorodsky, has authorized us to make a copy of papers I have identified and identified them in the record, so one thing is helpful--I don't have to go to the trouble of preparing a receipt because you have it in the record, and secondly, in the event--if we seek to question Mr. De Mohrenschildt I will have these documents identified as to their authenticity by way of this questioning of you.
Thank you very much, sir, you have been extremely patient and I would like the record to show that Mr. Raigorodsky appeared voluntarily, also he has a very bad cold which has been quite obvious and came to the U.S. attorney's office about 10:30 a.m. and then we repaired to here, his office, and it is now 2:15 in the afternoon and he has been under questioning during that whole period of time. I appreciate this personally and I know the Commission will. I offer in evidence the 'foregoing documents as Raigorodsky Exhibits Nos. 9, 10, 10-A, 10-B, 11, 11- A, 14, and 14--A.
Mr. Raigorodsky.
I hope to help you in some way, but I'm just as lost at this moment as I was then.
Mr. Jenner.
Well, you have been very helpful throughout this.
Mr. Raigorodsky.
Miss Oliver, the reporter, will transcribe this deposition possibly during the course of the week, if not, it will be ready next week, and you have the right to read it and make some corrections, suggestions or additions, and to sign it. That is a privilege that is accorded you, if you wish to examine it. You may also have a copy by purchase of a copy from Miss Oliver and whatever your deposition is with respect to all these alternatives.
Mr. Raigorodsky.
I would like to have a copy for sure, and I may, when you might note in spelling in some of the names, I will be glad to help you with that if you will call me on the phone before you put it down.
Mr. Jenner.
All right, we thank you very much.
Mr. Raigorodsky.
All right, thank you.
