Oh, I couldn't have stood for it. But you don't know
what she's done. She is absolutely marvelous! Marvelous!
Is she a young woman?
Yes, she's young and she's written the most tactful
letters you've ever read in your entire life.
Does she live on Park Avenue?
No, she lives on 86th Street near Park, and she's done
this masterpiece -- I consider it -- though I'm going to have to
call them up to tell' them they should cut the grass a little
shorter. It still looks about 95% better than it ever looked.
And the same people did it that did it for me, only they've done
it better this year. They're going to have golden tulips on
all of Park Avenue. You'll be surprised. You've never seen
so many tulips in your life as there'll be this spring. So we
think we're going to get the rest of it done down to 46th
Street, and it will all be absolutely stunning.
