In Mary Farrell's database, there is this entry:

LAST ALCOHOL & TOBACCO TAX FIRST MID/AKA

ADDRESS 607 Wholesale Merchants Bldg., 912 Commerce St., Dallas, TX

'PHONE (214) 749-3304)

SOURCES CD 853A (2); 1/14/64 memo from Carl R. Booth, Jr., Supervisor in Charge, to SA in Charge, US Secret Service, Forrest Sorrels.

COMMENT Memo sets out activities of 8 investigators of A&TF who rushed to TSBD 11/22/63 and searched building (among them, Frank L. Ellsworth)

In the Mary Ferrell Foundation pages of Warren Commission Documents, I don't find a CD 853A.

Has anyone seen this memo from Booth to Sorrels?

Steve,

Please pardon my ignorance on these matters but what is "CD", as in CD 853A (2)? Does it refer (since "SOURCES" appears to be a heading) to the storage mode of a record such as a Compact Disc or is it merely the identifying code of an archive of any material?

Thanks,

John G

Steve,

I can't help you with the Booth memo (and not wishing to divert this thread) but there is this potentially interesting piece. A few years after the JFK assassination, there was a push to have all guns licenced with the federal government. Booth was behind the effort in Dallas.

Amongst the various weapons to be licenced were umbrella guns. What the ... ?

I wonder how many Dallas residents had this sort of thing in their armory? :rolleyes:

CD stands for Commission Document - as in Warren Commission.

You can find them online here:

http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/...o?docSetId=1008

There are about 1,500 of them. Some of them are over 1,000 pages long.

CE stands for Commission Exhibit.

You can find them here:
