Tea with the president

November 11, 1940

President Franklin D. Roosevelt had tea earlier today with Crown Princess Martha of Norway, reports the Associated Press.

Martha, a refugee in the United States, is staying at Pook's Hill, an estate in Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C.    President Roosevelt drove to the estate after "laying the cornerstone of a new naval medical building at Bethesda."

The President remained at Pook's Hill for about 90 minutes.
