Today we took A.F.1 to Dothan Ala. with Sen’s. Denton & Heflin & Cong. man Dickinson. It was a wonderful experience. Dothan is the “peanut capital of the world.” 1,000’s of people lined the street to the municipal auditorium where I addressed a crowd of 1,000’s at a fried chicken lunch.

Arrived at W.H. 4:45 P.M.—a quiet evening at home.
