Into the office—my bandaged improved on way by Dr. Hutton. Ken D. told me Peggy was fired up & against some of suggested changes in my Farewell address. Met with her later in morning & smoothed things over.

N.S.C.—Still trying to get Vietnamese out of Cambodia. A new development—it looks like China is willing to meet with Soviet U. on jointly getting V’s. to leave.

Japan—funeral has been set for 47 days from now. Geo. B. will attend. Geo. S. is back from Chemical Warfare symposium in Europe. Quadaffi invited world press to come to see his bldg. which we say is making poison gas & he says it isn’t. Well the press arrived & had a picnic in desert several miles from plant for them. Kept them there til dark then drove them past the plant whose lights were all out & took them back to town. Soviets have resumed troop withdrawal from Afghanistan. After Peggy—Lunch. Then Personnel with Bob Tuttle.

At 1:45 over to E.O.B. to meet with high level business group to explain our budget to them. They gave me a white Stetson. More desk time—photo with Landon Parvin, his wife & baby. A photo with six staff members who are raising the funds for the Library—the Presidential Foundation.

A session with Edmund Morris—probably last as Pres. Stopped by Dr’s. office. He notified me he’s been put on list to get his Generals star. Upstairs to shower & dinner with Merme & Ted G.—Nancys in N.Y. getting an award from Stylists. Back tomorrow P.M. Forgot to note—this afternoon I went over to the Japanese Embassy & signed the Condolence book re the death of Emperor Hirohito. And so to bed.
