Finding aid only for Manuscripts Small Collection 3353. Letter, 9 December 1963, to “Bonnie” from Pauline Jackson, Corsicana, Texas. Regarding the recent assassination of President John F. Kennedy, she speculates that assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was part of a government-orchestrated plot, that he knew his own killer Jack Ruby, and that more than a single gun was fired. She comments on many Texans’ antipathy toward the Kennedy Administration and suspicion of Vice President Lyndon Johnson for another murder “coverup,” but does not blame Texas for the assassination. She also shares some genealogical data.
