Day 50 – Arrival in New York, Friday July 27, 1934

The sisters got up at 7:30 after she and Lib had laughed and laughed about their trip and getting home. They were in New York Harbor with six or eight tugs playing around.  Saw the Monarch of Bermuda go out, later the Majestic.

They got their passports checked and their landing cards before breakfast.

Saw the Statue of Liberty.

Said goodby to people and waited on the boat for a time while the crowd got off, then disembarked and waited and waited for our baggage.  American Express man was there. A nice steward helped them.

Virginia met them and rode in the taxi with them to Grand Central where they had lunch.

They got the 3 o’clock train.  Hot.  They were in an unairconditioned car.  Train was full.

Met by the family at 8:15 in Back Bay.  Rode home and talked until twelve.  She felt rotten – still traveling on the ocean.
