[[vertical notation in red in left margin]] Bound Brook visit on 45th Anniversary of our Marriage [[/left margin]]
[[underline]] Aug 8. [[/underline]] This is the [[red underline]] 45th anniversary [[/red underline]] of our marriage. So we thought the best way to celebrate it was to visit the Bound Brook new factory. Started here at 8 AM. over Yonkers Ferry and the Palisades. Beautiful weather. Arrived there about 10 AM. and visited all the departments unescorted.  Celine took intense interest in every detail asking questions and eager to linger longer. Walked up the steep stairs to the roof of the tallest building which gave us a birds eye view over the 100 acre plot and surrounding landscape. [[red underline]] Nobody in the world could begin to appreciate the immense road we had travelled, [[/red underlined]] between my humble beginnings in my modest laboratory at Snug Rock, when every day almost every hour I showed her my newest research development and explained them to [[strikethrough]] them [[/strikethrough]] her, and all the viscissitudes thru which we passed. Seems like a dream now since the day when I showed her [[red underline]] the first piece of Bakelite [[/red underline]] which I was able to produce and which [[red underline]] was about the size of the top of my finger.[[/red underline]]
Took a simple but excellent little Luncheon at the [[red underline]] Bound Brook Inn [[/red underline]] where
