Card Games

Despite the fact that the Alberto Valentino family spokesperson stole almost all of Michael Morris' notes, some survived the raid. I am not sure how these escaped but I think it was because they visibly had no relation in content to Rudolph Valentino.

Most of the surviving hand written notes in Michael's archive are transcripts of conversations he had with Mark Hasselriis, Natacha's companion for the last 20 plus years of her life.

This one page from the Hasselriis notes is sweet I think. Natacha and her Uncle Dickie played solitaire. But still upsetting how larceny seems to be so accepted by some in the Valentino World. Michael Morris' notes need to be all returned, every single page. 

This said, Michael tried to get his notes back. One of many e-mails he shared with me about this. (see below)
