Q:

In the heat of Washington.

Lasker:

In the heat of Washington and in 15 minutes because their attention span isn't more than 15 minutes. I am exhausted by it, absolutely exhausted. I have really neurological symptoms.

All the awards I've told you about. I've decided to sell my house, and I've bought two apartments in the United Nations.

Q:

Really you're selling 29? When are you selling it?

Lasker:

Well, I hope I have a firm offer, but I haven't got the money yet.

Q:

That's sad, I think.

Lasker:

It may be sad, but it will be much simpler to live on one floor.

Q:

I'm sure of that. And you're taking two apartments in the United Nations.

Lasker:

Yes, and they're put together.

Q:

Is it on the same floor as your offices?
