It could be argued, though, that the testimony mentioned is
contaminated by news stories that ran nationwide July 9 1947,
describing the object as a weather balloon with flowered tape on
it. Cf. the Roswell Daily Record, URL

http://www.roswell-record.com/rancher.html

or this one from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, URL

"Headquarters of the 8th army at Fort Worth, Texas, announced
that the wreckage of a tin-foil covered object found on a New
Mexico ranch was nothing more than the remnants of a weather
ballon.

8. Those men who saw the object said it had a flowered paper tape
around it bearing the initials "D.P."
