Pat,

Steve, who wrote that handwritten memo? Do we know?

No, with no From and no To, it's impossible to know.

I ran the RIF number through NARA and just this one record shows up.

It's signed, "S", but that could be anybody.

I thought of something last night. Is there any indication that George de Mohrenshildt knew Russian?

Why would somebody write a note to someone in a language they didn't know?

Steve,

DeMohrenschildt most certainly spoke Russian, it was his "mother tongue", or native language. In fact he spoke several langauges.

Mr. De MOHRENSCHILDT. My mother was Russian, of Polish and Hungarian descent.

Mr. JENNER. And the nationality of your father?

Mr. De MOHRENSCHILDT. He was also of Russian, Swedish, German descent.

Mr. JENNER. You, yourself, have the command of at least four, maybe five languages. May I see if I can recall them. English?

Mr. De MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes; if you consider it a command.

Mr. JENNER. Yes; I do. German?

Mr. De MOHRENSCHILDT. German, not too well.

Mr. JENNER. Spanish?

Mr. De MOHRENSCHILDT. Spanish.

Mr. JENNER. French?

Mr. De MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes.

Mr. JENNER. Russian?

Mr. De MOHRENSCHILDT. Russian; yes.

Mr. JENNER. And I suppose a smattering of a number of other languages.

Mr. De MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes.
