The story starts with a letter postmarked November 16, 1963. The letter was mailed from Miami Beach and addressed to the “Chief of Police of Miami.” The letter was from a group called the “Cuban Commandos” and threatened both President Kennedy’s life and that of then-Miami Mayor Robert King High.
“The Cuban Commandos have the BOMBS ready for killing JFK and Mayor KING HIGH either at the AIRPORT or at the Convention Hall.
A Catholic PADRE is going to give instruction at Cuban Womens Broadcast at (illegible time) tonight by “(illegible RADIO)” and then all are invited to Bayfront Park Auditorium and take along a BOTTLE of wine, wiskey (sic), Etc. to decide who will throw the bombs. At King High because he did sign the Ord. about (illegible) being only American Citizens and sending refugees away, Etc. Mary”
