Photograph caption May 29, 1941 reads, "Mrs. Ernest Hemingway, the former Martha Gellhorn, said last night as she boarded a T.W.A. plane for St. Louis that her recent return from China, where she accompanied her husband over a month ago, signified only that she had completed a 'job' for a well known national weekly magazine. Blonde, slender, and a writer in her own name, she gave her home as Cuba, said she would visit her mother in St. Louis. With President Roosevelt's statement last night that 'the magnificent defense of China' was one of two factors impeding Hitler's plan for world domination, she agreed 'definitely,' said, 'everyone knows that's true.'"
