Re: RYMUR

Specimens received: December 14, 1978 from SAC, San Francisco (81214067 D IH)

Kc1: Photocopy of handwritten note bearing known handwriting of James Jones

K2: Freedom of Information Request dated 6/6/77 received at State Department and signed “Rev. James W. Jones”

Result of examination:

Due to insufficient comparable known handwriting, a definite conclusion could not be reached whether James Jones prepared the questioned handwriting on the note taken from his body which was previously submitted in this case.

Kc1 is retained. K2 is being returned separately to State Department. Appropriate photographs have been made of the specimens.
