Me gusto que encontre este sitio. Yo tuve el gusto de jugar en esa casona cuando era niño ya que mi abuela vivia en uno de los departamentos que rentaban en la Casona y conocia al Sr. Spencer. Recuerdo que la Casona era un lugar lleno de vida por tanta plantas que ahí había, rincones tan misteriosos para mi que era un niño, estatuas y esculturas que para mi eran como un cuento antiguo de misterio, me encantaba esa época y como era toda la casona, mi abuela nos mandaba a comprar pan a la panadería de al lado y cuando ibamospasabamos al lado de la casa o habitacion principal del Sr. Spencer con su grande cancel-ventanal blanco tapizado de puro vidrio. Me gustaba subir hasta la azotea a mirar toda Cuernavaca y la catedral, bueno ya mas grande hasta me toco ver de allí arriba como filmaban parte de una película de Harrison Ford (Peligro inminente). En verdad que bonitos recuerdos y que hermoso lugar en ese entonces, lastima que como museo se siente seco, desierto, arido y pobre de vida como lo era antes.

In the late 1950s when I was working in Italy I met John Spencer in the convent of San Damiano in Assissi. He was making ink sketches for the Catholic magazine Jubilee. His gentleness and his intensity impressed me and he told me he had just left the Fransican order. I later visited him at his home on Via Metastasio. He was intrgued by Roman street scenes. I have two of his paintings of Rome , one of which is unfinished. He also gave me photographs of his other paintings.. I would love to send these oil painitngs to the museum. Fervently hope someone will contact me before I shuffle off this mortal coil and all that. Thanks .Am delighted I found this site.

In 1996, I was traveling along the southern coast of Mexico enroute to Belize and was awakened on Valentine's Day morning by a dream in which an old man beckoned me into the garden of the Hotel Papagayo where he told me about his deceased wife, Boo. I had no idea this man actually existed, and no idea that the Papagayo was in Cuernavaca, where I ended up there that evening. The following afternoon, I encountered the man I'd dreamed of in the little cafe he frequented next to the Casona. He told me his name was John Spencer.

After crawling the internet for years in search of information about John and photos of his art, which I've written about extensively in my Mexico Diary, I'm thrilled beyond words to have found this site.

Hola:

Yo solo hablo espanol pero me es lindo platicarles lo lindo que fue para mi el conocer a John Spencer, si lo conoci, desde antes que naciera mis padres trabajaban en la panaderia que esta a lado de la casona, y conocieron a Elizabeth y a John , cuando yo naci fui muy consentida de ellos (John y Elizabeth) ya que ellos nunca tuvieron hijos, pero poco tiempo despues fue cuando Elizabeth enfermo y fallecio, tengo unas lindas fotos con mi hermano siendo el recien nacido y con John y mi papa, saben una de sus obras que a mi parecer de las mas lindas es la cruz que esta en la capilla exterior de la catedral de Cuernavaca, Morelos. mi papa me cuenta que John le explico su gran significado y que adentro tiene un madero que fue tallado por John una representacion de la santa cena del senor Jesus con sus discipulos, de hecho mi padre y madre admiraron su construccion, y muchas cosas mas que conocimos de el como su cumpleanos y que le encantaban los pasteles de manzana, o que fue un vegetariano rigido, nunca comio carne alguna, y que le fascinaban las tarantulas, o su amor por sus gatitas y que en su coleccion de diferentes cosas tenia una linda piedra tallada , con la imagen del arca de Noe. Muchas cosas y mas vivimos con el, y me fue muy lindo compartirlas con ustedes, ya que gracias a estos recuerdos aun lo siento vivo, viendo toda la obra majestuosa que hizo John, para dejar plasmado su talento en la casona, y todo el empeno que puso en su reconstruccion sin contribucion alguna o apoyo sino que el mismo lo hizo, y saben es de las pocas personas que lo dan todo a cambio de nada.

Espero que esten bien, se despide su amiga Noemi Blancas

John Spencer was maybe the most imaginative man I have ever known. I loved him and Elizabeth, and miss them mightily. I feared he would forget to eat when Boo died, but it is gratifying to know than he had friends. And that he did not die alone. I had feared that he might. His letters, always illustrated and elegant, ceased some years ago, so I am glad to know his work continues even though he diesn't. What a man, what an artist, what a pleasure to have known John, and, her without whom John would not have survived, Elizabeth, wonderful woman.

La Repubblica dei gigli bianchi
e' il libro scritto dal talentoso scrittore Italiano di Montesano FELICE DE MARTINO .
Il libro e' interessantissimo un grande lavoro letterario del bravissimo scrittore ,un vero capolavo .Il libro parla della imprese del grande impresario FILIPPO GAGLIARDI che praticamente costrui la nuova caracas nel 1940 50,il libro non solo parla dettagliatamente della vita e delle geste del grande costruttore ITALIANO che divento' miliardario nel venezuela .Ma sopratutto il libro descrive le opere filantrofiche del GAGLIARDI a beneficio dei poveri nel sud ITALIA ,lo stile de FELICE DE MARTINO e' unico tanto e' vero che scrive questo libro come se fosse un romanzo in realta' e' una storia vera realmente accaduta ,il libro assorbe il lettore ,anche perche' descrive l'importanza dell'unione famigliare in ITALIA nel periodo del dopoguerra ,LA REPUBBLICA DEI GIGLI BIANCHI e un libro che tutti gli appasionati della buona lettura devono leggere ,e' un vero capolavoro di FELICE DE MARTINO.
