Summary:Anne Holloway Heintze, Walter Heintze, Gay Porter Holloway, Katherine Anne Porter, and Donald Elder, at the marriage of Anne and Walter Heintze, cutting the cake, April 21, 1950, New York, New York. Caption on back: "This is the photograph about which Joan Givner made the goofy assumption that KAP drew a faint line about herself, & wrote the above about herself indicating her proprietary feelings about the bride. The photographer is unflattering, & the lines were a guide to cutting herself out of the picture, as she often [underlined] did when she didn't like the way she appeared in a group picture (see the Coney Island photograph with GPL, MW, & GW). The above note means Aunt Gay, & nobody else. She undoubtedly had proprietary feelings, but a mother was a mother, and an aunt was an aunt, & she would never [underlined] have called them anything else. I'm astonished -- well, not really-- that Givner did not understand this." Note referred to in caption, written in pencil, reads: "Mother of the Bride."
