19TH HOLE THE READERS TAKE OVER

Author:

CROSS-EYED NELSON
Sir:
I would question just how much Ted Turner reveres Lord Nelson
(What Makes Ted Run?, June 23). As your photo indicates, Turner's
Nelson doll wears a patch over its left eye. The left eye was
Nelson's good eye. Nelson lost the sight of his right eye at the
Battle of Calvi and rarely wore a patch.
DAVID BERTON
Oak Park, Ill.
-- Right you are. Here's a look at Nelson minus the patch. -- ED.
