Dinner at the White House
Dinner at the White House

This imaginative piece is a beautiful example of a mouse giving birth to a mountain. On January 13, 1942, the author and his wife were guests at a brief dinner in the White House, at which by chance Winston Churchill was also present. On the basis of the casual conversation of this evening, Mr. Adamic engages in all sorts of "afterthoughts"-- sentimental, prejudiced, irrelevant and now and again perceptive.
