June 28, 1930  R.M.S. Franconia. Thrilling to see crowds at the pier and New York’s skyline, Brooklyn bridge and the Statue of Liberty disappearing from view.

July 2. Mid-ocean  Passed 3 ships today....
Joe and I stayed up, talking and watching the phosphorous till about 2. Had Jimmie’s lighter in my hand, luckily, for it was a great help--Joe is rather smooth. Moon gorgeous, too.

July 26. Paris  Went in the afternoon to the Louvre....Saw many famous things which impressed me beyond expression....got along fairly well with our French. Love to hear it & do wish I could speak it fluently.—from Dorothy’s diary

Dorothy
Dorothy, my mother, was a young society reporter when she met my father, a police reporter on the daily newspaper. After being widowed, she became Society Editor of the newspaper, in the years before the women's movement changed the rules of society.
