I believe I left us in that inagiilleent
building, the Library of Congr'ess. This

library in the Western I temisphere
and the finest in the world. The build

floor spac e of more than S acres. The
building is of Concord granite on a
framework of steel and the interior
walls are wholly stucco and marble.
So altogether beautiful it is I thought
