friend rather than an unbiased

It was a mistake about the
Com. meeting today - there was
none - it is to be held Monday.
Was invited to dinner with
Dr. Whitehead and the gentlemen
interested in his Alaska banks,
but on yesterday I invited Major
Richardson to dinner with me,
so declined. Talty dines with us.
Very quiet but enjoyable dinner with
Talty & Richardson - Talty was
drunk to start in on - so the Major
and I were so chagrined with his
antics that we refrained from getting
full. Dr. Whitehead & the Ailes
Bros & friends had a fine dinner
