Christmas letter to son Stephen Kautz Jr.
Stephen's elder brother Edwin tells a story about Stephen's belief that he had caught a fairy one summer in Erzesebetfalva village.
Edwin also remarked that Stephen was often the sibling who defended his brothers and sisters from bullies on the streets of NYC.
Stephen was a talented musician. He played accordion like his son Stephen Jr. and achieved band leader status at a young age.
