June 13, 1942

At the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.

Quezon back from the big parade, said he had been so tired he wanted to back out. However he only had to shake hands with Mayor LaGuardia, King George of Greece, Governor Herbert Lehman and the foreign minister of Venezuela. He rode in an open car with Colonel Manuel Nieto, his aide-de-camp, and had never in his life had such an ovation –even in Manila.

He was greatly disturbed by the lodgement of the Japanese on the island of Attu, in the Aleutians, and remarked: “That’s no way to win a war –to lose all the battles.”
