Interview with Jerris Leonard
QUESTION 21
LOUIS MASSIAH:

OK, could you talk about Nixon's mandate to you when you came into office in the Department of Justice?

JERRIS LEONARD:

Well, anecdotally, ah, lots of people have seen President Nixon. I had a meeting with he and Attorney General Mitchell and I said, "Mr. President, what, ah, what are my marching orders?" And he said in his own inimitable way, "Jerris, enforce the law. And use your head."

LOUIS MASSIAH:

Very good, very good.
