January 21, 1953 Diary Entry

"My first day at the President's Desk. Plenty of worries and difficult problems.
But such has been my portion for a long time - the result is that this just seems
(today) like a continuation of all I've been doing since July '41 - even before that!"

Dwight D. Eisenhower, January 21, 1953
