CU Kaye speaking: 'I think emotions are the same the world over. All the stories. All the warnings I have been given not to expect to much from the people of the Midlands or the North Country and once again my argument comes right home to roost. They are people, they are steeped in the same kind of tradition that every human being is and all I can try to do is to reach them If I can do that, my work here will have been very, very successful. I will be very proud that I, as an American, have been able to somehow connect the link between our countries a wee bit stronger.' MV Kaye speaking. 'The one thing that I have found in this country that upsets me beyond anything, and this is because you are a generous, warm and enthusiastic people. Why is it that every time have gone out to play golf they always build the golf courses for accuracy and not for error' MV 'I hope I can come back soon, I hope I can consider this my second home. Until I see you all very, very soon again, good luck and God bless you all'. LV guests applauding as Kaye sits down.
