Interview with C. T. Vivian
QUESTION 124
INTERVIEWER:

I THINK WE HAVE GREELEY'S SIDE OF THE STORY ‘TIL A CERTAIN POINT AND THEN WE'LL TRY TO SEE HOW MUCH…

C. T. Vivian:

Yes, uh, see, this is um, uh, all I, all I actually remember we went out and we were stopped by, by, by, I remember talking with and having a conversation with, uh, Baker, about it, all right? Uh, the point is, we did not want to push be- and we didn't want to just push them out of the way and they knew that, all right? That was the conflict again on the bridge, the same kind of thing, they figured if they just put a mass of folk, that we wouldn't push through them, which we didn't the first time, right? We had to make them open by other means. But uh, uh, uh, we talked and uh, I felt a sense that uh, Baker understood a lot of things, was concerned about a lot of things, but we did not talk directly about the fact that Clark might do this or might do that, ‘cause if we talked directly about it, I would have felt the necessity that we had to go meet it.
