Nancy off early on her visit to Leningrad. My usual beginning in the ice house thats what I call the bug proof box we can hold our meetings in. Then my 3rd meeting with Gorbachev & again we got along well—it was a 1 on 1. Then he took me for a brief walk around the Kremlin grounds before we went back for the plenary meeting. Following meeting we attended the Shultz, Shevardnadze signing ceremony of some bilateral agreements—we’re up to about 47 of those now. Then it was a luncheon with a group of cultural & art community members at the House of Writers Assn. I spoke to them about the need for freedom of the arts. Then a couple of hours of free time (homework) and over to St. U. of Moscow where I addressed & took Q’s. from more than 1,000 students. Later met with 35 American Faculty members there on exchange.

Before day was over Gorbachev walked me out into Red Square. It is quite a sight—the expanse is so great it is really something to see. We stopped & talked with several groups of people who were there.

Tonite our dinner for the Gorbachevs—very pleasant & entertainment by our famous American jazz artists quartet.
