Another year begins and I trust it will be one of peace and prosperity for the whole world. Our day has been one of quiet as is all days.

I got up later than usual…had breakfast and did house work and prepared things for dinner…heard Dr Sockman. I cleaned myself up…changed the table cloth and got dinner.

Maurice shaved…read the Sunday paper and rested. In PM, he laid down a while, and I read the Post and watched Wide Wild World. Then went to see how Mrs H was feeling…back and got supper.

In eve, Ed Sullivan, Ted Mack (who is now on for an hour)…very good too, followed by What’s My Line?

Then to our downy couch and tomorrow another day in a new year 1956.

God Bless America and the world.
