Sept. 9, 1968
The following is the substance of a telephone conversation
I had with John Hurt on September 6, 1968 which I described
to you immediately afterwards by 'phone.
I identified myself as "Gene" and when he said he was trying
to place me I said, "Edgar Eugene Bradley". He th4n indicated
that he knew me and I mentioned West Parish. He said, " You
mean West Carroll" From then on we just rambled on as though
we were old friends. He said that he hadn't been back there
since his parents died but that Aunt Edith was still there as
well as a couple of old friends. I asked him if he ever heard
from Gonzalez and Gordon and he said, "Were they in jail with
me then?" I said they were and he said' "Oh yes, the little
Mexican, and who was the other guy. " I said that Gordon was
a bartender and he pretended to remember him. He said that
Gonzalez had been in so many jails that he couldn't remeber
Hurt went on to tell me all about his arrest in Raleigh
while driving on a one-way street with an opened bottle of
Jack Daniels Green Label and that he has had several con-
tinuances because his lawyer thinks the arresting officer
has drank or lost the evidence he took from him and they're
trying to stall 'til they can feel certain its gone. He
felt certain that if they can stall long enough some of those
cops will get rid of it and then he will get a dismissal.
His lawyer is as Negro named Sam Mitchell who was an Assist-
He rambled on at great length about directions for me to get
to his house and I told him I was in Woodbridge Va. and would
probably drive on down toRaleigh th next day. He invited me
to stay with him and the "old lady" and said they were still
drinking and fighting together. He said that "those Kennedy
boys always got him in trouble" It was when John got killed
that he got in jail in Louisiana and when Bobby got killed
he was jailed in Raleigh.
I told him that it was a one-way street that got me into
trouble on that gun charge; that I was driving the wrong
way on a one-way street when I got stopped and they found
the guns. He said, " Oh yes, I think I heard about that.
When does your case come up." I told him Octobet 4th. He
asked about my lawyer and recommended his ( Mitchell).
I told him I would see him the next day or Sunday and that
concluded the conversation.
