Typescript draft, handwritten note to send to Denton

Document Viewer

In the House, 32 proposals regarding Presidential succession had been introduced. Hearings were scheduled to begin February 7 before the full House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Emmanuel Celler, on the first day of which Bayh was to appear. In preparation his staff forwarded possible supportive questions to Indiana congressman Winfield Denton, but Bayh found himself instead fielding continuous challenges to the wording of various sections arising from numerous hypothetical scenarios that members felt were not adequately addressed. The House hearings continued for 17 days and generated 292 printed pages of testimony.
