Guestbook: September 14, 1946

Dear Mr and Mrs Polatschek,

I feel very out of place writing in the midst of the autographs of all these famous people, but anyway I'm not too original about these things., so I'll just give you my love and many more thanks for having been so kind to me all this summer.

I hope you'll come and visit me very soon and mother will cook then. (Maybe I will too.)


(Anne Davenport)

Except for the name "Ormandy" among the guests before Vicky died and left Fritzi a widow, I do not recognize any of the names. A bit of research has revealed that some, indeed, were eminent figures. Much of the writing is by German speakers and I have difficulty deciphering many of the names.
