World Fliers Have Lunch with
by Lt. L. P. Arnold, "Chicago", Mechanic
At noon we had lunch with General Pershing, Senator Reed & other members of the General's commission; at 4:00 we were at the Hotel de Ville & officially welcomed by the City of Paris, at 6 we met the President of France & had a delightful half hour chat with him & at 6:20 stood in line with him while some 4000 Olympic athletes passed by. At 8 we went to dinner at the Allied Club where several Ministers & many Generals & Colonels were present -- afterwards going to Maxims & the Monmarte a few minutes for old times sake.
The French people have been most enthusiastic & cordial to us & to have the President of France, General Pershing, and French Generals & Colonels being so kind to us mere Lieutenants is quite novel and interesting for all of them are learned men, doer's of deeds, and naturally are most interesting talkers.
by Lt. L. H. Smith, Commanding
It was necessary to spend today in calling on the President of France, laying a wreath on the grave of the French Unknown Soldier, and in making official calls on several French and American officials.
