[Affidavit by Seymour Weitzman]

Description:

Handwritten statement by Buell Wesley Frazier, age 19, who worked at the Texas School Book Depository. Frazier writes that Lee Harvey Oswald worked at the Texas School Book Depository, as did he. Frazier was in the habit of driving Oswald home with him on weekends, and noted that Oswald's wife lived with Ruth Paine. On the week that the president was shot, Oswald asked to go home with him on a Thursday evening, claiming that he needed to put up curtain rods. On Friday morning, Frazier noticed that Oswald put a long package in the back of his car. When asked what the package was, Oswald answered: "Curtains." Frazier did not see Lee Harvey Oswald after 11 am that day.
