One day Nelson was waiting in the garage when he got a call to take two of Mrs. Milton’s friends to the train station in Syosset. Upon his return, Nelson was driving down Cove Neck Road when he saw a lady, all dressed in white, walking as fast as she could. It had started to rain and she clearly had been caught out unprepared for the gathering storm. Nelson pulled up alongside her, leaned out of the new Pierce Arrow automobile and said, “Madam, may I take you home? It has started to rain.” The woman in white got into the back seat and Nelson drove off.
