(Testimony of George S. De Mohrenschildt Resumed)

Mr. Jenner.
very happy to say that I am now the sole proprietor of the whole project. It may be all for the best.
Mr. Jenner.
I will show the witness pages 4, 5 and 6 and 7 of Commission Document No. 542. I wish to direct your attention primarily to the-- what purports to be a letter from you to Mr. Kitchel, setting forth the background of information on a holding company that you were developing in Haiti. Would you read the letter?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. "Haitian Holding Company."
Mr. Jenner.
Excuse me. It may already be in evidence.
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. "August 1, 1962."
Mr. Jenner.
I think not--but if you will hold a minute. What I have just shown you is a copy of De Mohrenschildt Exhibit No. 6.
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes, sir; this was followed, of course, by many other letters and correspondence with our prospective investors and people who might be interested in a mining development of Haiti.
I am negotiating right now with an aluminum company for the development of bauxite, and with oil companies in regard to development of oil possibilities.
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. De Mohrenschildt, we have had some discussions off the record, and I had lunch with you a couple of times. Is there anything that we discussed during the course of any off-the-record discussions which I have not already brought out on the record that you think is pertinent and should be brought out?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I don't remember any.
Mr. Jenner.
None occurs to you?
Mr. Jenner.
Now, I don't know everything by any means. I will ask you this general question. Is there anything else, despite all our careful investigation, and my questioning of you at some length, that you think is pertinent and might be helpful to the Commission in its important work, and if you can think of anything, would you please mention it?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Frankly, I cannot think of anything else you could do. All the rest--what else can you do except investigate as much as you can?
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. De Mohrenschildt, you appear here voluntarily and at some inconvenience?
Mr. Jenner.
And on behalf of the Commission, and the Commission staff, want to express our appreciation to you for having come to this country, at some inconvenience, and your answering my questions here for 2 days spontaneously and directly. Some of them have been highly personal. But you have exhibited no discomfiture because they have been personal. We appreciate your assistance and your help.
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I hope I have been helpful to some extent.
Mr. Jenner.
Now, as I spoke to you yesterday, you have a right to read your deposition, and to sign it, and you told me I think yesterday that you would like to read it over.
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. If it won't be a very lengthy job and very hurried job to do that, and inconvenience the reporter. I think I have said everything I could know. I don't think I could add or change very much. It is all right as far as I am concerned.
Mr. Jenner.
As far as you are concerned, you would just as soon waive the necessity of reading and signing?
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. If I made a mistake, it was involuntary. I might have missed a date or something. But I did to the best of my ability.
Mr. Jenner.
We will have your deposition by tomorrow. And Mrs. De Mohrenschildt will be here tomorrow.
If you would like to come over and read it, you may. Otherwise, if you don't return to read it, we will consider that you have waived it.
I offer in evidence the exhibits I have heretofore marked, being De Mohrenschildt Exhibits 1 through 16, inclusive.

Jeanne De Mohrenschildt
