…Fanny has just scored the kind of dirt a good investigator was looking for…
“Can you give me a written referral letter, saying why you are sending Millicent to his care? It was hard enough asking you about……….well you know.”
On his official practice stationary, he spells out the situation about a poor rich girl from Jacksonville and the conditions of his referral:
Everett T. Sapp M.D.
112 Sheldon Avenue 3rd Floor
Havana, Florida USA
Dear Doctor Campbell;
Please confirm the receipt of this letter with a telephone conversation. It is comforting knowing that you are sparing families the embarrassment from a baby out of wedlock.
You can forward my $50 dollar referral fee and which is regular and customary.
Everett T. Sapp
“Not a big deal Mrs. Stanwick. Your daughter will be just fine… oh by-the-by, are you related to the Stanwick’s from over on River Street? Very nice family – wouldn’t want to see them be the talk of the town.”
“No sir, we’re not, my boyfriend is a sailor and we move a lot.” She had meant to pick a last name that was Jacksonville neutral, but no such luck. ‘It is Miss Stanwick, I do not have a daughter and you just signed a personal document that will stem the flow of white girls to Alpha’s back door. Oh and land you in a whole peck of trouble,’ she mumbles.
“What was that? You were saying?”
“I was thanking God for getting my girl out of a whole mess of trouble.”
