Per instructions from the Bureau, Senator John C. Stennis apprised by SAC John T. Kelly of information furnished by the Bureau concerning threats on his life. Senator Stennis appreciative and stated that he was concerned about this threat, although he had never heard of or met Reverend James Jones and was at a loss to understand how his name became involved. He desired that notification of local law enforcement officers be limited to the sheriff of Kemper County and the FBI in order to preclude publicity in this matter.
