The Salandria-Meagher Phone Calls

Here are Sylvia Meagher's notes on two telephone calls in late 1967. I can't tell which call came first because the date on the first call is wrong -- November 6, was a Monday.

In any event, the issue of Jim Garrison ruptured their friendship.

The next night:

Meagher ends by writing "I declined his offer of "partnership" and made it clear that I would continue to be guided by my own judgment and my own conscience and to pursue a consistent policy of denouncing lies and fabrications against innocent persons, wherever they originated. I felt that we had taken different paths, that we were now in different camps, and that our differences were so fundamental that they could not be put aside or ignored. The conversation terminated on that note."
