He was the rock legend known as The King, she was a school -girl who loved him tender and swooned at the mere mention of his name. Now, thirty -nine years after she wrote to Elvis Presley promising to marry him when she grew up, Karen Golz has learned that her idol did not have a wooden heart. In a message from beyond the grave, his reply finally arrived.

It was as her 11th birthday approached in 1960 that Karen wrote to Elvis, who was serving as an American GI 1 in Germany. In a letter posted to the house where he was staying, she wrote: “Dear Elvis, It's my birthday soon and if you send me your autograph I promise I will marry you when I grow up.”

Anxious not to disappoint his young fan, he wrote a note back, scrawling her name and address in Germany, on the envelope. Inside, the note said: “Dear Karen, May you have a very happy 11th birthday –and a lot of Teddy Bears. Your friend, Elvis.” He gave the stamped and addressed envelope to his landlady to post. But she mislaid it and the letter lay undiscovered until the woman died. It was only when her family was cleaning out the house that the memento was rediscovered. Even though they realised its value to collectors, they donated the letter to the local Elvis Presley society.

There, club members spent weeks tracking down Karen. After receiving the letter Karen said: "My eyes filled with tears". Though she plans to hang on to her letter, experts have valued it at around £3,500.

Are the following statements TRUE or FALSE? Copy the evidence from the text. No marks are given for only TRUE or FALSE.

Elvis Presley never went to Europe

When the letter was found the landlady´s relatives decided to keep it.

Explicación: Para la primera afirmación el párrafo relevante es:

"It was as her 11th birthday approached in 1960 that Karen wrote to Elvis, who was serving as an American GI in Germany" destacar parrafo

La respuesta es falsa ya que si Elvis sirvió como soldado en Alemania, evidentemente sí visitó Europa.

Mientras que para la segunda es:

"Even though they [her family] realised its value to collectors, they donated the letter to the local Elvis Presley society." destacar parrafo

La familia de la casera (the landlady´s relatives) de Elvis se dio cuenta del valor de la carta que habían encontrado y la donaron a la Elvis Presley society. Por lo tanto, no se la quedaron y la respuesta es falsa.
