'I just want to tell you that It's been a wonderful trip on this "United States", a great, great trip, It's a beautiful ship and I understand that the Cunard Line gave it a 21- torpedo salute as it came in today. And I think that's real sweet. And I also want to say that my dad, Mr. Crosby, is coming over here. We're going to do a big golf match with the Playing fields Association on September 21st at Maidenhead. It's a hilly course and if we can get the adrenaline for old Bing, we is gonna do it and believe me we play a great game - 5 cents a hundred. We'll see you all and that's enough for nothing"
