Anne Morrow Lindbergh on:
Their Marriage in Englewood

Anne Morrow Lindbergh Q: You were married quietly in Englewood.

AML: Yes, in Englewood, yes, that's right.

Q: But then the honeymoon. What was that like?

AML: That was really not fun at all. It was not private. I suppose somebody in the family told and so we were chased by planes. And we went out into open water and I think that discouraged the planes and the photographers and so forth. Anyway it was awfully rough. I don't get sea-sick but it was a very rough exit and all the dishes on the wall fell down and so forth but it did shake the reporters.

Q: That wasn't the first instance of sort of being harried.

AML: No, I remember when we went out in the car from Englewood. We went over somebody's wall, I think, just a low wall, or through a fence or something to escape reporters. It seems simply ridiculous now. But he was a great hero of the time .
