December 31, 1938 Saturday

S.U. Worked in a.m. and in p.m. with Mr. Shepherd of NH Finance Corp. Ate dinner at swanky Dudley’s.
Now we move into more spacious quarters to continue my “log.” Next year I hope I will be able to 1)crystallize and put into action my L.L.&L. policy (or maybe a new one); 2) continue French horn work; 3) become more objective in aims. That is, begin to do, rather than ponder what to do. Farewell, 1938!
Artist’s Impression of 1938
Color-gray in spring, yellow in summer, fall—gray, split with flashes of sparkling silver. Comparison—marching over rocks in fog—seeing a clear, invigorating road ahead—at times almost reaching it.

[On back endpaper of diary:]
1. Don’t worry or be afraid.
2. Never be angry or upset.
3. Don’t be bothered by little things—do them cheerfully.
4. Try to make everyone a friend.
