April 3, 1942. Friday (Good Friday). 117th Day.
Fine Easter weather.
Good news. Rumor--fairly authentic--hath it we embark April 25th. Let's hope.
Had a pass today but did nothing in particular. Beat JBS badly at checkers.

Cold, quite. Used heavy winter overcoat, but sunny.
Saw good show at Grande--Bing Crosby in "Birth of the Blues". Good fun.
Got a pretty good leather suitcase, used, for Ch. $80.00 (about US$4.00) on Rue Bourgeat. New, similar, are priced at 250/350.
A.M. and I had a snack at New Winter Garden. We had gone to Catholic Church for 11:00 a.m. Mass. Good music. Packed Church. We stood up. Then looked in on Russian Orthodox Catholic Church. Quite different, but both have an ornate ritual.
