Saw “Mommie” off for London & the Royal Wedding. I worry when she’s out of sight 6 minutes. How am I going to hold out for 6 days. The lights just dont seem as warm & bright without her. Went to the Oval office for the morning brief but my mind wasn’t on it. Met in the State Dining Room with St. Legislators, Mayors & Co. officials from a dozen states re the tax bill. Had lunch with Mac McKenzie (my old college coach) his son & daughter-in-law. It was a warm bath in nostalgia. Then my former St. Architect from Calif., Fred Hummel & his wife Sue (my first Sec. in Sac.) came in with their 3 little girls—triplets—as pretty a sight as you could see. Had a meeting with Repub. members of the “Ways & Means Comm.” Ironed out some last details on our tax bill. Then met with 4 Dem. leaders of the “Boll Weevils.” Things are beginning to roll. We’ll know what’s going to happen in a few days. Al Haig called & said we may have a “cease fire” tomorrow between Israel & the P.L.O. Watched the “Waltons” on T.V. and so to bed.
