Lilo Welte Visited California
By Richard Simonton, Jr.

Well, my memory is not infallible, but then I was just a dumb little
kid at the time.  I wrote yesterday that Edwin Welte had visited us in
California in the early 1950's.  [Edwin's daughter] Lilo Welte did,
and stayed with us for an extended period, but my mother just straight-
ened me out about the old man I was thinking of.  It was not Edwin Welte,
but Farny Wurlitzer.  Sorry.  I won't let that happen again.

Richard Simonton, Jr.

 [ I received a very nice note from Richard today, saying that he tele-
 [ phoned his mother and asked her to recall details from 50 years ago:
 [ "She said she couldn't possibly remember, and then began to do so.
 [ I expect she will come up with an interesting reminiscence, particu-
 [ larly about things that my father had left out, such as descriptions
 [ of people, and other human touches."
 [ Richard says that player tech Ron Sanchez of Los Angeles recently
 [ restored her Steinway Welte piano and it sounds wonderful.  -- Robbie
