We saw General Eisenhower! He rode down Fifth Avenue with his son in a convertible. And the crowd–the paper said 4 million! We were lucky–leaving early for the New York City Library, we found space on the top steps–some boys were perched on the lion statues. When the cavalcade of cars came down the street, General Eisenhower stood up and held his arms in a V for Victory sign. We went wild! We cheered so loud, I thought I’d go deaf. Confetti and paper streamed out of the windows like snow...
Well that’s the excitement here.
