Sunday. Was invited to take lunch with
Senator Fairbanks (1800 Mass. Ave) today -
They have a large & splendid home: met Mrs.
Fairbanks, son and daughter & spent two hours
with them most delightfully. Mrs. Hemenway, m.c.
from Indiana called while I was there, with
Mr. Hoggatt, of S.E. Alaska, but I was
specially invited to remain when they left.
We talked Alaska, and Mrs. F. and the
daughter particularly did not tire of my des
=criptions. They gathered around - all four
like four interested children and we all
talked. They had a very modest but elegant
lunch & I greatly enjoyed my visit. They
kindly invited me to dinner on Tuesday & greatly
regretted that Debbie & Darrell had gone.
Have worked in room rest of day on letters
to the Dept. about Nome criticisms.
Wrote to Debbie tonight
