Thurs. a haircut—a Cabinet meeting to report on our trip. Then off to Camp D.

The weather was beautiful and it was a pleasant long weekend with horseback rides Fri. & Sat. On each day I topped the rides with a swim. The temp. on Fri. was only 54° but the pool was 92°. No problem getting in but a chilly one getting out.

On Sun. I called Kay Graham about a story the Post has been sitting on but threatened to run. It refers to a really top secret achievement of ours with regard to our ability to intercept U.S.S.R. communications. She promised to take the matter up with Ben Bradlee. She doesn’t want to order him—says that wrecks an editor’s influence on the writers etc. Sun. morning has gone by without the story appearing. I hope we’re in the clear.

Sleeping is coming hard to both Nancy & myself—we’re having trouble readjusting to Wash. time—13 hours different from Japan.
