- Jan 6, 2005Cadia,
I did a search on this website and came up with the following
message from Jim Whiteley in Aug. 2000:
In a letter to Lucille Henderson, August 10, 1944 (the return address
is Drawer U, Carmel, Calif.) Don mentions Vagabond's House:
Helen Spencer is carrying on the business, but Bob has been in
the Army, mostly at Camp Hulen down near the Gulf (and is it hot and
muggy THERE), and very homesick. I live around the corner from what
was Vagabond's House. Helen has made it over to suit them..which is
right and proper, but it is not remotely my Vagabond's House any
longer..but I never did do any regretting. It served its purpose,
and I often go in and out of the house quite forgetting that it was
ever mine. We never really own anything anyhow, and the sooner we
learn that the better off we'll be, especially in human relations.
There's a horrible murder case pending here right now , due to
possessiveness of a human life.
I also just dug up an article from the Monterey Peninsula Herald on
March 2, 1944:
DON BLANDING IS BACK IN CARMEL -- AND VERY GLAD OF IT
The article indicated that he was back to stay, indefinately (or at
least for a few months.) I'll see what other info I have in my files.
