(Testimony of George S. De Mohrenschildt Resumed)

Mr. Jenner.
the Commercial Bank of Haiti to be of further advantage to the people of Haiti."
Mr. Jenner.
You have read the two columns appearing under that heading that you described.
Now, would you read the column to the right of those two columns?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. "Mr. C. J. Charles, honorary citizen of the city of New York. Mr. Clemard Joseph Charles, president and director of the Bank Commercial of Haiti, Port-au-Prince, has come back yesterday morning with his charming wife, Sophie, from a trip of 2 weeks in New York, and was accompanied by Mr. James R. Green, vice president of the Manufacturers Hanover Trust Co., which is a large bank of Wall Street, New York.
"Mr. Green spent just a few hours in the capital, just sufficient time to visit the Commercial Bank with which Hanover Trust Co. wants to do business. Mr. Charles is very satisfied from the contacts which he has made during this trip, and satisfied with the promotion of his commercial bank. The Haitian banker was honored by Mayor Wagner of the city of New York, and has made his assistant, Mr. O'Brien, give the key of the city as an honorary citizen, to Mr. Charles."
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. Reporter, would you mark that "George S. De Mohrenschildt Exhibit No. 1"?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. This is by the way the photograph of a paper.
Mr. Jenner.
This is a photostat of two news items, in the Haitian paper in Port-au-Prince, together with a telegram.
Now, all those together comprised, did they, some of the promotion literature with respect to your Haitian venture?
Mr. Jenner.
In what respect? Can you give us the thrust of that?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. In the respect that they acquaint the possible investor with the personalities involved.
Mr. Jenner.
All right. Who is the gentleman who sent the telegram?
Mr. Jenner.
What is his first name?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Mr. B. Juindine Tardieu, who is the agent and you might say a broker who negotiated the contract with the Haitian Government.
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. He is domiciled in Haiti.
Mr. Jenner.
All right. Now, you had some correspondence with Clemard Joseph Charles?
Mr. Jenner.
Is the letter I now hand you, which we will identify as George S. De Mohrenschildt Exhibit No. 2, a photostatic copy of correspondence between you and that gentleman, a copy of which you transmitted to Paul Raigorodsky?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes; that is the letter I received.
(The document referred to was marked "George S. De Mohrenschildt Exhibit No. 2" for identification.)
Mr. Jenner.
Now I will show you a series of three documents, the first sheet consisting of a photostat of an envelope addressed, I believe in your handwriting, to Mr. Paul Raigorodsky; is that correct?
Mr. Jenner.
In Dallas.
The next being a personal note of yours in your longhand to Mr. Raigorodsky; is that correct?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes, indeed.
Mr. Jenner.
The next being in the form of a copy of a letter from you, dated July 27, 1962, to Mr. Jean de Menil.
Mr. Jenner.
In which you have written in the upper right-hand corner in your handwriting, "Copy for Mr. Raigorodsky." Is what I have said correct?
Mr. Jenner.
And lastly, there appears to be promotional literature, one sheet, dated August 1, 1962, signed by you at the bottom?
