Dick off early. I caught up diary + pottered about. Called New London for Jimmy’s office phone no. Spoke with Ann Merrell + Daddy’s getting out of the hospital today Colby is there to pick him up. Called Jimmy who said he’d call back. He did + when I laid out the problem he said he’d call back again. He did + put a Kate Jackson on the line. I gave her all the information I had – evidently Jeffrey is no help to Ana + Armando until [crossed out words] he is 21 years old. Ana came over using her [crossed out letters] maiden name but when she discovered she was pregnant she + [crossed out letters] Armando got remarried in L.A. to save any problems with Jeffrey. Jimmy called back a third time about noon to say they have two alternatives. A bill by one of the Nevada Senators which will keep them here while its pending (but no help to them if they leave) or going back + trying to do it all on the up + up. Spoke with Dick who’d been drinking + he said he’d call Oscar Goodman. Called to say Oscar had handled several cases but wanted to discuss cost.
