Tuesday [26 Dec. 1950]
I may like Newfoundland dogs but there is one gift I do not share with them and that is a sense of direction. I started off this morning to find 43rd St. with a certain number, to buy a ticket for The Lady's Not for Burning. Having acquired a lot of information from the desk I had to supplement it with data from the street and the last answer was 'Can't you see that East is over there and West is there.' I had forgotten that the directions ran from 5th Ave and not from Broadway as I momentarily thought.
However, I managed to take a 7 Broadway Bus which took good care of me. I got my single ticket all right.
Nellie is coming down to dinner with me tonight and I'm giving her the pottery present.
I shall write every day. I just posted a card to Mother.
Things are going fine. Tomorrow I start in with the M.L.A. More news to come.
