Duke was known for his skills of seduction. Only four women managed to have a lasting hold on him: his wife Edna, dancer Mildred Dixon, showgirl Evie Ellis and his final mistress, Fernanda Castro DeMonte. Fernanda was a singer and a jet-setter, a woman of great culture and an appreciator of Duke's music and art in general. In this hand-written note to his sister, Duke requests a wire transfer to Fernanda in Italy.
