38. You are correct.

There was no mail pick-up on Monday because it was a federal holiday (Columbus Day).

The time frame began for the letters to have been mailed - according to the documents released - at 3 p.m., Saturday, October 6 and ended at noon, Tuesday, October 9th. Ivins was in the lab on Oct. 5 (Friday) and Saturday morning . According to the docs, Ivins was there from 7:45 p.m. until 12:43 a.m. Presumably he was at work on Tuesday and he was there again, Tuesday, Oct. 9 (no times given) for fifteen minutes.

From this timeframe, we are to assume that Ivins took the anthrax itself (or prepared the letters in the lab) and then left the lab at a quarter until one. That means that Ivins had the letters in his possession for 14 hours and 15 minutes. That's when the second window of opportunity opens for the second batch to have been mailed.

source for the above time information is top of page nine. I'm sure, of all people, that you are familiar with this document and page 8. ;)

edited to correct "11" to "14".
