Part 175:

I don’t know what Jerry found in the briefcase, but at dinner I got a valuable clue about how to pick up a baby whom you’ve met for the first time. When the Russian picked up my infant daughter she began to cry. This didn’t faze the Russian; he merely direct her glance at his finger as he slowly pointed to a picture on the wall. She quieted right down. I’ve used this method many times some and to works, and what’s more it stops a baby from crying from other causes. Come to think of it this might be a valuable tip for politicians who want to get cuddly with voters’ babies.
