Indexer Notes

Story is a partial reprint of "Forgive Me" from 3-D Love #1 (December 1953).

There are references to town residents "Rose Kennedy" and her son "Jackie Kennedy." In real life, Rose Kennedy was the mother of future U.S. president John F. Kennedy. Peter says "The Kennedys don't have much money!" which is a ironic joke because the real-life Kennedys were quite wealthy.
