Dearest Mary:
Still going around in circles. Summer seems to have more activities than the winter, these days.
The dear Senator Hollings called me the afternoon they marked up the bills in the subcommittee and gave me all the figures. I am sure you have them all by now. Fortunately, we got more money for heart and neurology and arthritis and we got the twelve million for aging research, which is twice as much as last year. It will be a better base for next year.
I had dinner the other night with Congressman Jacobs in his house. He had Congressman Anderson, who is on the Rules Committee and he is very nice. He has also introduced a bill in the House for an aging institute. There are now about twelve bills and Rogers saps he is going to hold hearings in early September.
The editor of our papers in Palm Beach was here yesterday and he is doing a series on aging. They are Rogers' home town papers, so he will be pleased.
Went one night last week out to Janie and Phil Hart's house in Frederick, Maryland, for the night. They have a big horse farm there. We had ten days of horrid, humid weather, but it is lovely today. I had dinner one night with Dr. Duval, Dr. David, the Mondales, and Senator Hollings. Hollings is so amusing, he talked about the health bills and aging. Dr. Hogness called me yesterday and I am seeing him on Monday. I have had two meetings with all those young doctors and they have some excellent ideas for material for speeches for all the Democratic candidates.
I hope it is lovely there, I am sure it is. I always close my eyes and think of the wonderful color in the sky and the sea. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you.
[Handwritten: No definite plans yet but will send soon. Love to you - Florence]
