“Today REDACTED advised that reluctantly and regretfully REDACTED since he felt any action on part of the company might be interpreted as an invasion of the customer’s privacy and therefore a violation of law,” according to the Memo from the Boston Office of the FBI to J. Edgar Hoover.

 

PAGE 14 “The Grey Book”

A January of 1962 FBU unveils that an informant says he saw Raymond Patriarca go towards the cellar of the Coin-O-Matic and reach for a “Gray-type book which appeared to be a record-type of book.”

This is the first-time that the “book” had been identified.
