Meagher recalled, ''There wasn't much of a welcoming. I was met at the station by my friends. The Herald and Mail gave me a bouquet of flowers . . . but that was about it. No fanfare.'' Townsend's story ''Memories of Berlin'' appeared in The Chronicle-Herald, 21 June 1976.[MG 1, vol. 2999, no. 1, between pp. 232-233]
