News teletype almost immediately following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, with staccato information about the shooting and the suspect, ''a young man picked up at the scene.'' While undated, teletype appears to be from 22 November 1963, reading in part, ''Mrs. Kennedy held her husband's limp body in her arms when he toppled over in the back seat of the open car. / He was rushed to the emergency room at Parkland Hospital. / Priests and doctors went to his side. He was given the last rites of his church...and a short time later died. / Police found a foreign-make rifle. Sheriff's officers are questioning a young man picked up at the scene...Witnesses said they heard three loud bursts of gunfire. / The shots appeared to have come from a grassy knoll...'' Single page measures 8.375'' x 9.25''. Light wear and fading, overall very good condition.
