Regarding Sue Jeweler’s June 5 letter, “When the queen passed by”:

I, too, saw the queen, Prince Philip, and President Dwight D. and Mamie Eisenhower — all in the car together going to the football game at the University of Maryland in 1957. I was standing on a small hill with my parents, brother, aunt, uncle and cousin. We lived in West Hyattsville and walked a couple of blocks to go watch. From that point on, I always loved stories about the queen and her family. I was 41 / 2 years old, but the memories are very clear.
