Up at 7:30 to pack & do a farewell to the embassy staff. Then over to the Kremlin for a farewell to Gorby & Raisa & off to the airport for a formal departure with the Gromykos & parading the troops etc. All was done & we boarded A.F.1 for the 3 1⁄2 hour ride & the 3 hour time change.

We had a big breakfast & that turned out to be lunch for the day—well not really. Charlie & Carole had a quiet lunch for us at Winfield House. Then we had some down time—about 4 hours before we left for Buckingham Palace where we had a pleasant tea with Queen Elizabeth. From there it was over to 10 Downing St. for a tête-à-tête with Margaret Thatcher—I gave her a report on our summit in Moscow aided by Colin, George S. etc. Then a pre dinner reception & dinner at 10 Downing & a brief view of the mounted troop “Beating The Retreat.” Over to Winfield House for a good nights rest.
