Diary of Basilio J. Valdes

May 15, 1942 – Friday

6 p.m. Took train for New York. Arrived 10.10 p.m. Chiquit (my half-sister) and Howard (her husband) met me at Pennsylvania Station and took me to their apartment at 137 Riverside Drive corner 86th Street, a delightfully cool place. We talked until almost midnight and then we went to bed.
