Look, there's no smoke without a fire, so if the military at first announced they had a downed UFO, it means they really had it.
Also, Gazrock, you noticed just like me that the date is July 8th, which is the date the Roswell newspaper announced the disk story, but the time is
6.17pm, i.e. after the balloon story was created.
More over, the subject line clearly states "FLYING DISC, INFORMATION CONCERNING".
The name of the officer, according to another version of the teletype that I have on my hard disk is Major Curtan, not Maj Kirton, but they could be
the same person, just misspelled.
And finally, the other main word that's scratched could be 'OFFICIALLY', giving "WRIGHT FIELD HAD NOT OFFICIALLY BORNE OUT THIS BELIEF" and the
one at the end could be RISK, giving "RISK AND FACT THAT NATIONAL ...".
Just bringing in what I know about that.
This is a nice find anyway, as the text itself, clearly states that the telephone conversation didn't bring anything OFFICIAL is quite revealing. Not
official, thus non existing...
