Brian Crozier—England came by. I’ve corresponded with him and read his writings frequently but this was the 1st meeting. He made a suggestion—we should not allow the Soviets to have so many more agents in our country than we do in theirs. I know our estimate is around 4000 here.
This was King Hussein (Jordan) day. He’s doing a great & courageous thing in his efforts to bring about peace in the Middle East. We are working with him & intend to carry on. We’ll face a battle in Congress but he needs “arms” & we should provide them. He’s threatened by Syria because of his efforts to bring about peace with Israel. Syria is fully armed by the Soviets. Our problem is the need for the P.L.O. to participate in peace talks but their reluctance to agree that Israel has a right to exist as a Nation. Meetings went well. Back at the office a brief meeting with the widow of our agent Camerena who was murdered in line of duty in Mexico. She’s a lovely little lady, without bitterness but certainly with grief. Her 3 sons weren’t with her. Geo. S. came by [. . .] We’ve agreed.
I addressed a group of citizens, ethnics, religious groups etc. on tax reform in the E. Room. Cleaned up my desk & went up stairs. Had to stay under cover. Nancy has the Queen for tea.
