Lot 8098: Original Western Union typed telegram sent to Robert L. Oswald to notify him of Lee Harvey Oswald's return to the US, one page, 8 x 5.75, stamp-dated June 14, 1962. In full: "Lee arriving Dallas Love Field 7:30 PM tonight, Flight 821." Telegram was sent by Janet F. Ruscoll of the Special Services Welfare Center in New York. In very good condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds, overall creases, and a couple edge tears. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from his older brother, Robert L. Oswald. Returning from the USSR, the Oswalds arrived in Hoboken, New Jersey, on June 13 via the ocean liner SS Maasdam, and the following day took Delta Flight 821 to Dallas. Upon his arrival at Love Field, Oswald was disappointed that they received absolutely no attention from the press—he had even prepared answers to questions he anticipated being asked at press conferences or interviews.
