A cable from La Paz on October 29, 1963, stated that "Chief, KUDOVE (Clandestine services of CIA) approved Wade I. Teegast (IDENTITY A), now COS Prince, as replacement for Pataker (Jim Flannery). Pataker's next assignment is Mexico City. Teegast should arrive La Paz early January 1964, and after suitable overlap, Headquarters desires Pataker defer home leave until next summer and transfer direct to Mexico City where he replaces Walter B.

Another cable on the same day stated that IDENTITY A was David Smock and IDENTITY B was David Phillips.
