Met with Ambas. His Royal Highness Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia. His uncle King Fahd had written me a letter about a message that someone had given him that his purchase of mil. weapons from us was contingent on his publicly supporting King Husseins middle east peace effort. King Fahd was understandably upset. I told the Prince to tell him there was no such linkage. There is however a plea from us; we have a better chance of getting Congressional approval of the sale—which isn’t easy, if we can point to the Kings participation in the peace effort. Then a meeting with Fred Fielding about a minor problem in Dixon Ill. Bill Thompson one of the movers & shakers in the restoration of our boyhood home is off on his own as if he is an appointed ambas. for me. He reproduces autographed photos I’ve given him & his wife Jean & sells them etc. His wife is upset by what seems to be his obsession with me. So am I.

A Lunch in the State Dining Room for Bipartisan Congressional leadership of both Houses. Reports by us on Hostages, Budget, & Tax reform.

Then an N.S.P.G. meeting on Beirut—I’ve called for action now—beginning with the closing of the Beirut airport which would cut off a lot of revenue for Berris Amal militia.

Last item of an easy day—a photo with Andy North—2 time winner of the U.S. Open & his lovely family.
