He didn’t use a credit card and almost never wrote checks. Sometimes he’d reach into the safe he kept in his den and take out ten thousand dollars and slide it into his money clip. Bibbs enjoyed going shopping with Jeanette. She had a way of turning everything, even sitting around in a shop, into an adventure. They’d ride into Manhattan in the Lincoln Continental, driven by Bibbs’s chauffeur, John Green. They’d go to Bonwit’s or Saks, Jeanette’s favorite stores. And then, her eyes glistening with excitement and her hands caressing him, Jeanette would select dresses and suits and furs—a mink cape was his special treat.

Upstairs was Bibbs’s den, which was another large room, as well as a few small bedrooms and a master bedroom appointed with two separate bathrooms and a dressing area that contained hundreds of feet of closets. But it was the amenities and grounds outside the house that were truly spectacular. There was a big pool, a hot tub, a sauna, and a roomy boat dock, all offering views of the glittering Long Island Sound, as well as a long winding driveway that secured the estate’s privacy as it twisted upward from the road past gardens, shade trees, and a velvety one-hole golf course.

Jeanette’s little girl, Joy Fererh, reveled in the story of their romantic courtship. Joy was a pretty little thing who looked a lot like her mother. Indeed, sometimes, when she dressed up in her mother’s clothes, her mother would say, “You’re me! ” And while some young girls want to look like anyone but their mothers, Joy seemed happy to think that she might have inherited not only her mother’s extraordinarily good looks but her remarkable ability to make a man fall—in an instant—head over heels in love with her.
