From the St. Petersburg Times, St. Petersburg, Florida, on this day in 1939:

Morgan 'Chatters' As Usual

NEW YORK. - (AP) - J.P. Morgan was as talkative as usual when he sailed in the Queen Mary yesterday for a spring vacation at his London home.

His comments on the state of the world:

Politics - Nothing to say.
Finance - Nothing.
Weather - Nothing.
Europe - Nothing.
James J. Hines' conviction - Not interested.

Morgan did say that it did not "necessarily follow" that his going to Europe at this time meant that he believed there might be no war.

He said he was going for the purpose of mapping a trip on his palatial yacht Corsair, recommissioned in February.
