Hi, I’m writing for my cousin Mary Anspach….
She’s referring to the conversation with you at the recent Jeanette MacDonald/Nelson Eddy Club Meeting at the Sportsman Lodge in Studio City. She wants to let you know that she talked with her sister and Phyllis verified that they were ages 4 and 5 years old. They were at the Pier in Santa Monica in the summer of 1935 or 1936. Her sister, Phyllis, remembers that Nelson came to them when he heard Mary crying (she caught her finger in the car door) and took them (with their mother and Aunt Mary Surina, a dress designer) to, they think, his house. He dressed the wound and then walked them to their car.
Mary says that she had a great time listening to you and your adventures. She is taking me with her to the next meeting. Thank you for all of your graciousness. Jackie Golden
