INTERVIEWER:

LET'S GO BACK TO THE FRIDAY NIGHT OF THE, THE MEETINGS.

William Bradford Huie:

The Friday night, the meeting with Milam, Bryant and Bryant's wife, Mr. Breeland, who had come in that night, an older man, Mr. Whitten and a young lawyer from New York, thirty-two to three year old lawyer, he went to Fordham, I remember, I've forgotten his name at the moment. Anyhow, I had met him in, in Memphis and he had brought the money and brought a big sheaf of papers to be signed. And he had really never been southwest of the Hudson. And so he was terribly frightened when he got off the plane. He was going off down to Mississippi with four or five thousand dollars in the bag and he was going with me, he thought I was crazy I guess and going down in Mississippi Delta at this time and so he didn't know whether he was going to get back alive or not. And uh, so uh, we stopped the car. He went and we took him and I got him off to the… I myself was afraid that he would cause trouble, I had raised this point at Look. He's so inexperienced, I said, now listen you are coming out here to deal with a couple of murderers.
