Getting along fine.  Had lunch in the Senate Office Bldg.  Thanks for the birthday greeting & gift.  Lots of people here – wonder what it is like in the summer?  Driving is bad here – lots of patience.  Parked right behind the capitol today.  White House tomorrow.  --Harold
Lincoln Monument postcard - mailed 1966.  Captioned: LINCOLN STATUE.  Situated in the center hall of the Lincoln Memorial is this immense sculptured figure by Daniel Chester French.  The Statue is flood-lighted at night, throwing into strong contrast the lights and shadows of rugged features and deep set eyes.

How is everything?  Did your windows all get soaped?  Up here if you are over 12 and trick or treating they can fine you some money.  Tomorrow we plan to see where they make the money.
[Love, Roberta]
