06/04/64: Memo for the record from Raul J. Hernandez, WH/SA/SO/HH: SUBJECT: Telephone Conversation between AMBIDDY-1 (note: Manuel Artime Buesa) and Martin Ferrer (note: Raul J. Hernandez): DATE: 29 May 1964 at 0130: "1. After being informed by night security that 'Mr. Ignacio' had called I returned A-1's call. 2. A-1 mentioned he would need four RB-12's and two RB-9's for the next operation. A-1 asked if they could be given to him directly to take to Nicaragua. I told him this would have to be checked out with Dick. 3. For security reasons A-1 felt it would be best for AMJAVA-4 (Rafael Quintero) alone to meet with Carl. A-4 will be staying at the same hotel he stayed the last time they met. Meeting scheduled for 29 May 64. After 1430 Houston time, A-4 will use alias of Rafael Carela."
