@Newbies: (Psst... she saw Oswald on the bus)

AFFIDAVIT IN ANY FACT
THE STATE OF TEXAS
COUNTY OF DALLAS
BEFORE ME, Patsy Collins, a Notary Public in and for said County, State of Texas, on this day personally appeared Mrs. Mary E. Bledsoe, w/f 67, 621 N. Marsalis, Dallas, Texas, Telephone WH2-1985 who, after being by me duly sworn, on oath deposes and says:

Last Friday, November 22, 1963, I went downtown to see the President. I stood on Main Street just across the street from Titche's until the parade passed by. The I walked over to Elm Street and caught a bus to go home. The bus traveled West on Elm Street to about Murphy Street and made a stop and that is when I saw Lee Oswald get on the bus. The traffic was heavy and it took quite sometime [sic] to travel two or three blocks. During that time someone made the statement that the President had been shot and while the bus was stopped due to the heavy traffic, Oswald got off the bus and I didn't see him again. I know this man was Lee Oswald because he lived in my home from October 7, 1963 to October 14, 1963.

/s/ Mrs. Mary E. Bledsoe

SUBSCRIBED AND SWORN BEFORE ME THIS 23rd DAY OF November A.D. 1963

/s/ Patsy Collins
Notary Public, Dallas County, Texas

Bledsoe also saw a picture of his baby before she was even born.

You continue to grasp at straws

That was June Oswald she saw, born in Feb 1962
19-month-old children are usually considered to be babies; especially first-born.
Some aren't even talking by that age. In any case, Bledsoe saw her as a baby in the picture Oswald showed her, and that's what counts.

Nice try, Chapman.

Mrs. BLEDSOE - And so, that give me a lead, something to talk about, and I said, "Well, what kind of work do you do? "Oh, I do electronics," he said, and I said, "Well, there is some good jobs because you are young, and you can get a good job a young man like you."
And then went on. Then something about him being in the Marines, and I said, "Well, that is wonderful. My son was in the Navy." And talking about him, you know, just getting to know him, and--but, "here is a picture of my wife, and picture of the girl, and the baby."

My analysis is based on a more accurate Bledsoe statement, given the fact that Rachel had yet to be born:

a more accurate Bledsoe statement

If Bledsoe gave "more accurate" statements, she also must have given less accurate statements, right?

Wait? Doesn't that, by definition, make her an unreliable witness?

Chapman, who is your intended audience? Mrs. Bledsoe's first cousin Jake Germany, Jr. was first cousin of notorious  Dallas / Las Vegas enforcer and
alleged hit man Russell Douglas Matthews, associated with Jack Ruby through organized crime activity.

Dallas SAIC Sorrels had current access to SS protective research in the wake of recent, fatal presidential visit to Dallas. Consider that he had
access to much of the following detail....but not only permitted Mrs. Bledsoe to testify, anyway. In fact, he encouraged her!

Mrs. BLEDSOE - Well, I thought, "Well, he is gone," and forgot it.
Mr. BALL - But, before you go into that, I notice you have been reading from some notes before you.
Mrs. BLEDSOE - Well, because I forget what I have to say.
Mr. BALL - When did you make those notes?
Mrs. BLEDSOE - What day did I make them?
Miss DOUTHIT - When Mr. Sorrels and I were talking about her going to Washington, he made the suggestion that she put all the things down on paper because she might forget something, and I said, "Mary, you put everything on a piece of paper so that you can remember it and you won't forget anything, you know, what happened," and that's when she started making notes.
Mr. BALL - You have made the notes in the last week?
Mrs. BLEDSOE - Yes.
Miss DOUTHIT - At my suggestion and Mr. Sorrels.
Mr. BALL - You didn't make any notes during the week he was there?
Mrs. BLEDSOE - No; I didn't pay any attention to him. ?.

Her father, Dr. John W Germany, married the first cousin of Mary Bledsoe's ex, 24 years Dr. Germany's junior.

Mary as a witness is confused, unpersuasive exactly where you discern clear meaning?

And everything he said, I had to pull it out of him to talk about something for him to say what it was.
Mr. JENNER - But, he volunteered the picture of his wife and child?
Mrs. BLEDSOE - Yes; he did that. Showed me that picture.
Mr. JENNER - Was that an ordinary snapshot picture? ...
