<table border=2><tr><td>Pregnant with Peter, Frances again flew to New York City and gave birth to him on 23 Feb 1940 at the Le Roy Sanitarium, according to Peter.  Jane however states that Frances gave birth "in the same hospital she'd delivered me in"(''My Life'', p42).  (Did it change names from Doctor's Hospital to Le Roy Sanitarium?)  The birth was announced in the ''New York Times''.  Curiously the birth announcement states that the Fondas are "of this city and of Hollywood"([http://scplweb.santacruzpl.org:2249/pqdweb?index=7&did=109344329&SrchMode=1&sid=1&Fmt=10&VInst=PROD&VType=PQD&RQT=309&VName=HNP&TS=1220334211&clientId=54310 25 Feb 1940, p38]).  Neither Jane nor Peter state that their mother or parents were living in New York City in 1940, but obviously they were.  Peter in his autobiography states that "as soon as she was able" his mother moved to the Pierre Hotel, but that he stayed at Le Roy for seven weeks "the only baby in the hospital."  Jane speculates that her mother had post-partum depression.  Henry, at the time making ''The Return of Frank James'' flew to New York City and brought Peter home with him to Brentwood, California.
