UNITED STATES SECRET SERVICE
May 14, 1964
Mr. J. Lee Rankin
President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy
Dear Mr. Rankin:
There is forwarded hearwith a copy of the original notes made by Special Agent Bennett concerning his recollection of the incidents surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy on Novemer 22, 1963.
A statement by SA Bennett was included in our original report to the Commission as Exhibit 18. The significance of the attached notes is that they were prepared by SA Bennett on the President's plane during its return flight to Washington on November 22, before the details of President Kennedy's wounds became general knowledge.
The notes have been marked as Secret Service Control 1495.
Very truly yours
[s]James J. Rowley
