Saw Rowaina but she didn’t see me.   Saw Miss Anderson and her pal from Pecos who were in Mexico City last year.   Paul Zink there too.   Harold n’ Jaime joined us and Jonathon decided to stay at the Gateway.  Lenora’s folks came to take her to Juarez and we went to the Spinning Wheel.  Biggest drinks ever for a dime.  Freddie and Sally were there too.  To bed about 1 A.M.
