Father Not 'Ashamed' of His Real Heritage

April 21, 1996

Jefferson Morley's article "The Spy Who Loved Me" (March 27) delivers one of the lowest blows so far to my father's reputation. My father was half Mexican and proud of it. I base this statement on a 42-year association. Yet Morley writes that my father possessed an "antipathy to all things Mexican" and felt "ashamed" of his Mexican heritage.

Nor does the article point out that my father vacationed in Mexico and was gratified to meet and talk with his Mexican relatives at a family reunion held during the last year of his life.
