The bag, belonging to Buddy Holly, contained a roll of adhesive tape (same size as what was used on the taped handle), a toothbrush, a half-used tube of Colgate toothpaste, a hairbrush and a comb (there must have been two combs as a BHMS member was given one of the combs by Larry Holley some time ago), a jar of Dusharme lanolin hair sheen, a Remington shaving powder stick, Sea And Ski tanning cream (8 fluid ounce plastic bottle hardy used), a small bottle of Anacin, a small clothes brush used to remove lint (with much lint on the bristles), a tube of Chapstick lip gloss, a packet of five Ronson lighter flints with two missing (no lighter was found in the bag. A lighter was found at the scene and returned to Jay Richardson.), a Ban lotion deodorant tube, and a few other assorted items, most in pieces.
