January 3, 1936-
A dream – of our moving into a flat in a poor neighborhood in Buffalo, which was on a third floor of an old ramshackle house- From one of the bedroom windows there was a view out even the harbor where boats were going to and fro – and I thought, in my dream of what fun for a boy to sit and watch the busy harbor life.
