Prince Edward visited the United States and Canada in 1924. While in America he became acquainted with Mrs Pinna Nesbit Cruger, (26th November 1896, Halifax Nova Scotia, Canada, 31st March 1950, Santa Barbara, California, USA) wife of the haberdasher, Freddie Cruger. Miss Pinna Nesbit was the daughter of the late Captain William A. Nesbit, a British army officer stationed at Toronto, Ontario, Canada. F Scott Fitzgerald, Life of Letters, refers to her as a “damned attractive woman”, and the inscription probably refers to Prince Edwards stay in America and his time spent with Pinna Nesbitt, who became the Princes frequent dance partner during his stay.
