Dearest Folks:

McCunniff was a welcome visitor at the office this afternoon. He has “changed jobs” and was on his way to take up his new assignment. Looks a little thin, but well and happy. Asked him out to dinner tonight but he had an engagement and couldn’t come. He leaves tomorrow.

A Mrs. Hamilton Shields called me up this morning and said she “knew the family.” I cant place her. Upon inquiry, I learned that she has been in Paris for several years and is well known here. She has been decorated by two or three governments for some sort of War Work. Well, Mrs. Shields, whoever she is asked me to come to dinner tonight. As I had to rush back to the office, I declined, but promised to drop in tomorrow and say howdy.

Another caller I had was a Capt. Mack. He knows all the Ochs’ and, I think, is from Cincinnati.

Still no word from Julius nor Franklin Kline -

Best love
A

Adolph S. Ochs, Jr.
