Dear Neil,

Thanks again for answering me.

Please listen to me !!

What I have been supposing (I am not 100% sure of course) is
that there was _another_ flight with another pouch.

General DuBose, for his part, described _two_ different flights:

- the one in his affidavit. Sealed pouched directly sent
to Washington, presumably on Sunday evening (he does not give
the date in his affidavit).

-the one he describes in the Shandera interview: the canvas
pouch with balloon debris which he received from a B-29, carried
and displayed on Ramey's floor. Presumably on Tuesday, although
he did not specify the date, but it had to be the date since the
debris was displayed after the visit of Marcel do Ramey.

So, if we pay attention to what general DuBose said, he
described _two_ different flights with a pouch.

Why did he mention only one in his affidavit?

Possibly because the second one was much less important to him.
Sufficed to say in his affidavit:

"The material shown in in the photographs... was a weather

On the other hand, he did not describe the flight carrying the
real debris, carefully wrapped, with Marcel and other officers,
because he was not there at the arrival of the plane. It does
not mean he was ignorant of that flight: he just did not witness

All this seems clear enough to me!

Let me add this. We may suppose that, if General DuBose had been
entirely "in the loop" of the whole operation, he probably would
never have said a word about it. He may assume the same for
Major Marcel. Both men knew only part of it.

Remember how Cavitt refused to show Marcel his report,
if that is true?
