Mr. President, fellow staff members, ladies and gentlemen:
I thank you all for this gracious welcome party and the kindness you have shown me.
As most of you may realize, settling down in a new city is very difficult, even for bankers, and many of you have taken the time and trouble to help me.
Let me give you one example of this kindness. A few days after my arrival, I went with one of the gentlemen here to a car dealer. After almost agreeing to buy, he pulled me aside and said, “That car’s lousy.” Not knowing what he meant, I looked very surprised. He then said, “That car is lousy. You know. I added a new word to my vocabulary, and two, I saved money by not buying that car.
Thank you very much.
