money for baby

I never read that CAL overruled JFC through Breckkinridge. Since Breck wasn't there, this musta been decided upon back at the COndon house.
If I recall correctly, CJ must have told JFC to return in a little while with the $$ and that CJ would give him a note telling him where the baby was. If that is so, then CAL approved the agreement in the car, it having been decided upon earlier.

            It seems a pretty good bet there was a lookout at both cemetery meeting locations. I believe Lindbergh genuinely felt if he did everything he was told, his son would be returned to him unharmed. That ... more
