While being a part of a couple guys who were personally escorting Ruth Paine around Dallas for a 3 day weekend back in September of 2019 (while she was in town to attend the premiere of "Truth Is The Only Client" at the Texas Theater), I got to hold in my hands an envelope which, in 1961, contained one of the letters Oswald wrote home.

This is Oswald's own handwriting and most likely contained his DNA.

I know I'm boasting a little bit but I don't mean it to come across that way.  I just figured some members here would find this kind of neat.

For your enjoyment and entertainment, Smithsonian Folkways Recordings has available for download or custom CD: “The Oswald Case” which is Marguerite Oswald's attempt at capturing a side of her son the general public had never seen (and an attempt to capitalize on her relationship to LHO).

https://folkways.si.edu/the-oswald-case-mrs-marguerite-oswald-reads-lee-harvey-oswalds-letters-from-russia/american-history-oral-history-biography/album/smithsonian


If you just want to know what is written in the letters, I believe they are part of the WC exhibits. If you are also interested in Marguerite’s commentary (along with the letters) you can click on the button on the right hand side of the linked page that says “Download Liner Notes” for free. And if you are so inclined to want to hear Marguerite read the letters, you can download them for ten bucks, or order the CD for 17 bucks.

I firmly believe LHO was a manipulator extraordinaire. I believe that this is demonstrated by the tone of the letters compared to the way he reportedly treated his mother at other times. He apparently needed the cooperation of his mother to help get him and Marina out of Russia. He waited until he had decided that he didn’t want to stay in Russia any longer to even let his mother know that he was still alive. And he reportedly treated his mother badly both before and after the time frame involved in these letters. Some of which letters he even signed “Love and kisses, Lee!  ::)

What a crock of crap!  :-\

Thanks for posting this, Charles.

That's really cool you were able to hold a piece of history in your hands and to be part of that experience.

Thanks Rick.  Yes, it was a really good time.  Joe Alesi (the guy who owned the envelope) had it enclosed in plastic and let me take it out and hold it in my hands.  He had previously bought it at auction.

Wow, that’s very interesting Bill! Was it addressed to his mother? What was your impression of Ruth?

The envelope I held was for a letter addressed to his brother, Robert.

Ruth was very sweet.  She is aware of the silly theories concerning her but she really doesn't seem to be concerned about them.  Incidentally, when we were about to go inside the house in Irving (they closed it off just for us), Max Good was there waiting.  This was back in 2019 and he was still in the process of making his documentary.  By this time, he had already interviewed her in California.  He asked her if he could go inside with us to film her inside (more footage for his doc) and she told him No.

That's amazing stuff.  Be careful, though.  According to CTers, Paine was a mastermind behind the assassination.  She might put you under some type of Manchurian candidate mind control.  LOL.  I would really love some of these jokers to be put in a room with Paine and let her tear them a new one.

I really wished she would have sued some of these people for defamation. She would go under oath and they would have discovery - that's what they want, correct? - but they too would have to go under oath and repeat their claims and also be subjected to discovery. Imagine these silly asses under oath? Knowing they could be charged with perjury? You think they'd repeat their claims made on the internet? Or in their books?

Let's see what happens.

She said that she thinks Oliver Stone changed her name (to "Janet") for the movie out of fear of a lawsuit. That she was still a private figure and didn't have to meet that incredibly high standard that a public figure has to in order to prove they were libeled. She said that she was never contacted by Stone or any of his people but that the actress who played her did call her with a few questions.
