Longhand Note of Former President Harry S. Truman, June 19, 1953. President's Secretary's Files - Longhand Notes.

Friday, June 19, 1953

Left home at 7:15 A.M. in the new Chrysler New Yorker. It was a very hot day from the start. Drove on 24 highway to Monroe City where we went into 36.

Had lunch at Hannibal at the junction of 36 and 61 highways. It was a good fruit plate with ice tea for the drink. We thought we were getting by big as an unknown traveling couple until we went to the counter to pay the bill. Just as we arose from the table some County Judges came in and the incog was off.
