An important person and I liked him
I used to see Herman B Wells come into the restaurant where I worked in 1935 to 1937, and he'd always come in for his meals. I worked at the soda fountain. I never spoke to him, but I did notice him, especially in his new 1935 Ford four-door convertible. Although we never spoke to each other, I felt that he must be an important person and I liked him.
