After going with Jack while he got a date with Ruth Goldstein staying at the Royal Haussman, we took a train to Versailles. The town is attractive and the huge palace is all. It is on three sides surrounded by huge gardens, trees, statues, lakes, fountains, and flower beds. From the front of the castle can be seen a wide lane between the trees. This is near a kilometer in length with large fountains, lakes, and flowers all in it. Built by Louis XIV. Marie Antoinette also lived there.
Had a rotten lunch and a good dinner for 5.70 (latter). Rained some tonight. Jack is out on a date with Ruth and I am keeping the home-fires burning by writing several letters . Rode subway today. Got all twisted up and finally walked the last mile.
