A Letter from Mary

Anyway, I wish I could send you the whole album, so you could peruse.    I also have an article about Tom Mix betting 10,000 on Dad to pin 3  heavyweights in 15 minutes.  He did and Tom Mix gave him a diamond  ring.  Hoot Gibson's name, also, is in that article.  He dated Ida Lapino's sister also at one time and I have a photo of her and him.
