In reference to the voluminous amounts of gifts that the American public shelled out to show their love for Prime Minister Winston Churchill during his 1941-42 visit to Washington, a writer at Collier's Magazine observed:

"When we like some distinguished visitor, we turn the national pocket inside out for him; and what comes out of that capacious orifice is nobody's business but our own. The results in the case of a really top-flight visitor are sometimes astounding to anybody who doesn't know Americans intimately. If we hadn't liked Mr. Churchill immensely from the moment he arrived here, none of us would have sent him anything..."

More about this state visit, can be read on the White House history website...
