04/05/63, Memorandum for the record from Alfonso Rodriguez, SAS/SO: Page 4: ..."10. (REDACTION) I purposefully did not go into depth and great detail with AMBIDDY/1 because the surroundings were neither appropriate for this and because to have done so would have given AMBIDDY/1 the impression of a great interest. I did not want to encourage him unduly but did promise, as he requested more than once, that we would answer his request without a long delay. He asked more than once that he wants to know yes or no because if the answer is no, he will seek aid elsewhere and attempt to carry on without us. The meeting was held at 4623 Chain Bridge Road in McLean, Virginia, in the home of Roberto San Roman. The latter individual was present but did not attend the discussion held. I used the name Alfred Rodemeyer..."
