No early calls—but later in the morning word came that the hostages were going to leave in a Red Cross motorcade for Damascus. It was a long ride—we then were told that celebrations in small villages along their route was delaying them.

About a quarter to 3 our time they arrived at the Sheraton hotel in Damascus.

Out to Geo. Shultz’s house for dinner with Geo. & Obie. A very nice & finally relaxed dinner.—Before that however I spoke to the nation on T.V. from the Oval office then Geo. took Q’s. in the press room. When I spoke our people were just leaving Syrian air space in a U.S. mil. aircraft.
