Mr. and Mrs. Cluett call and suggest we come to some agreement by which they can buy most of our antiques! They seem to want it all – including Gene’s beautiful clipper models – pictures, etc. etc.

Call Boll and talk with him. Then phone Gene – but the connection is so bad we can’t hear each other! (Everybody in Georgia listening in!) – This upsets Gene and causes a nerves crises! We start sending wires back and forth until everything is so confused things become most difficult!

Finally give up and go to bed without dinner. Lie in bed making lists (in my head) and prices.
