This Day In History: 1936-09-07

Bob Ritchie’s best friend, Steve Kroeger, writes Bob (currently in France) that he met with Jeanette and Anna MacDonald while they were in New York on the 4th, and when he privately asked Jeanette if she was happy (recently engaged to Gene Raymond), she broke down in tears. Kroeger was so flabbergasted at her unhappiness that he suggested to Bob that he might have a chance to win her back.
