Home at last


There was no diary page for January 20. But I know what happened. It's about 300 miles from Fredricksburg VA to New York City. It is easily done in a day, even without interstate highways. (25 years later, Ruth was living in Fredricksburg and I made the trip to visit her often enough.)

So why no diary entry? There is lots of evidence that almost all my diary entries were written the morning of the next day. This day finished at home. Not much happened on the twentieth except for 300 routine miles. And I had lots to do now that I was home. So what would be the point of putting effort into the final diary entry?
