There are more.

Magyar Elet is "Hungarian Life", not hungarian rifle.

Whether this is the Hungarian version of LIFE magazine...I don't know for sure. If it is, Oswald read Hungarian as well?

Ruby able to read Hungarian.....hmmmmm. What next?

As detailed in the records of the Dallas Police, Jack Ruby received a mountain of mail from people all around the world after he was publicly identified as Oswald's killer. This could be something along those lines.

As detailed in the records of the Dallas Police, Jack Ruby received a mountain of mail from people all around the world after he was publicly identified as Oswald's killer. This could be something along those lines.

The date of origin shown for 2 of these documents is 11/26/63.

There was no time for mail to be delivered, intercepted, translated and made available to the FBI by that date.

Oswald was killed on a Sunday, I believe. Monday, the 25th, would have been the earliest any mail could have been

placed into the U. S. mail system. I doubt very seriously that any mail, sent from any location except Dallas, could have

been delivered by the 26th.

Take a little time to examine the data these references contain. Do you still feel they are simply Ruby's "fan mail"?

Notice the use of the name John in the subject title, while using Jack in the actual document. Perhaps this was done to help

bury the document?

The point I tried to make was simply that it appears that Oswald and Ruby were both able to read (and speak?) Hungarian.

That, in my opinion, is very curious information indeed.
