"B needs p.js so badly we went to Kobe to get material.  Thought we got cotton but was rayon.  Went to luncheon for Shirley Jeffery's for Winnie Harbin & Ruth Seito.  They are going home.  Helped Teruko-san cut p.js."

"Spent most of day getting ready to go to Tokyo.  B met Clara Kessler in Kobe and helped her select a new Canon camera.  She took him to Oriental Hotel for a big steak dinner.  She goes there often because food in the Japanese home where she stays is not good even if they are wealthy."
