To the Crew of the S.S. America
This is to thank each and every one of you for the wonderful trip on board your S.S. America.
The food was excellent and we enjoyed your fine services.
We shall look forward to sailing with you again in the not too distant future. Good luck to all of you.
This letter dates from the transatlantic cruise Taylor and Stanwyck made in April of 1947. Barbara said in an interview that it was really their honeymoon since they hadn’t had one when they actually got married. It turned out to be a difficult trip and didn’t help to solidify the already rocky marriage.
