    Catalotuer's Note: There is an apparent discrepancy in the written records, one refers to his arrival at "LaGuardia Field", another to his arrival at "Washington Airfield". Other details recorded are "The former head of the Hungarian government, forced to resign after a Communist coup, is in self-exile in the United States for an indefinite period. Nagy, who will ask the United Nations to intervene in Hungary, now makes a plea to the American people." This item was recorded as received on 02/06/1947 and 18/06/1947.
