In Full: "Dear John- So sorry we couldn't come to the party today- we had certainly planned to but our little girl had an accident at school- and we were busy with doctors and x-rays. Luckily nothing is broken- but it would have been impossible for us to come- I did want to see you- I think the Theatre World Awards are important and special- Thanks for the birthday card- and for all your kindnesses through these years- Hope to see you soon and Love-" Carolyn Coates (1927-2005) began her career as a stage actress in children's theater.
