(Testimony of Agent John Joe Howlett)

Paine and my examination of the premises, and you have assisted me, have you not?
Agent HOWLETT. Yes.

Mr. Jenner.
In making measurements and also in recounting the appearance of rooms, front lawn, garage, and otherwise?
Agent HOWLETT. Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
In all those measurements that you made and reported to the reporter, were they as accurately made as you could make them under the conditions?
Agent HOWLETT. Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Did you report, orally, truthfully, and accurately the various measurements that are now recorded in this record?
Agent HOWLETT. Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
And were you present during the time that I also called figures or ordered descriptions?
Agent HOWLETT. Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
And were the figures I called and the descriptions I made, to the best of your knowledge, information and belief, accurate?
Agent HOWLETT. Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And made in your presence?
Agent HOWLETT. Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Thank you.
Agent HOWLETT. There is one thing on there--on the window.
Mr. Jenner.
Which window?
Agent HOWLETT. The window in the southeast bedroom.
Mr. Jenner.
Yes--that's Marina's bedroom, is it not?
Mrs. Paine.
She was staying in there yes.
Agent HOWLETT. I believe I previously reported that as 3 feet 3 inches, and I think it should have been 3 feet 8 inches.
Mr. Jenner.
High or wide?
Agent HOWLETT. Wide would you like for me to check it?
Mr. Jenner.
Yes; you might check it.
Mrs. Paine.
It's probably 3 feet 6 inches--it's identical to the shade we have just measured.
Mr. Jenner.
Off the record.
(Discussion between Counsel Jenner, Agent Howlett, and the witness, Mrs. Paine.)
Mr. Jenner.
Back on the record for Mrs. Paine's testimony.

Ruth Hyde Paine - Resumed

Testimony of Ruth Hyde Paine Resumed

Mrs. Paine has now produced and has in front of her as she is seated here at the table, some documents--what are they, Mrs. Paine?
Mrs. Paine.
I have here translations of seven of the letters, and they are the seven most recent letters that I have sent to Marina Oswald.
Mr. Jenner.
Since November 22?
Mrs. Paine.
Since November 22.
Mr. Jenner.
They consist of one, two, three, four. five, six, seven pages?
Mrs. Paine.
Each letter is complete on one page.
Mr. Jenner.
And I will now mark that seven-page document as "Ruth Paine Exhibit No. 277."
(Instrument marked by the reporter as "Ruth Paine Exhibit No. 277," for identification.)
Mrs. Paine.
And, I would like to describe what little correspondence between November 22 and the first date here---December 27.
Mr. Jenner.
Would you forgive me if I asked you a few more questions about the exhibit first?
Mrs. Paine.
Oh, yes; I'm sorry.
Mr. Jenner.
"Ruth Paine Exhibit 277" consists of seven pages of translations prepared by you?
Mrs. Paine.
That's correct.
