Quiet a long time had passed, the sad expression probably not left my face.
Atatürk called me to his side and offered me two glasses of champagne one after
another. He said.
- I hurt your feelings. But I wish with my heart that my musicians should
know all the songs as to be able to accompany every singer.
The fatherly gesture of Atatürk dispersed all my sadness. I held his hands
joyfully and kissed them again and again with a great regard.
Atatürk: “You have had the benefit again," he complimented me.
