We present time profiles of the 2.223 MeV neutron-capture line and the 4.44 MeV 12C nuclear-deexcitation line derived from observations of the 4 June 1991 X12 solar flare obtained by the Oriented Scintillation Spectrometer Experiment OSSE on board the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory CGRO. We discuss the OSSE instrument, the solar observation mode used during the June period, the data analysis technique employed, and derive an estimate of the accelerated-particle spectrum and a lower limit to the number of interacting particles.
