61.04 (JES memo to Donovan)
Major Kelley; Goering; Raeder; Doenitz
This memo reports the cohesiveness of the defendants and their cooperation in a mutual defense - a tendency that their attitude toward the prosecutorial strategy of trial by documents seems to undermine. The author reports, "The method of conviction by documents is viewed with mixed glee and disdain [by the defendants]." The document is a typewritten original of excellent quality on browning paper in good condition.
