George S. brought F.M. Shevardnadze (Sov. U.) over to the Oval office to deliver Gorbachevs letter to me. Then he discovered he’d left the letter with his own team. But he had a good set of notes on what it contains so he did a 20 min. speech on it. The Gen. Sec. wants a meeting between him and me in London or Iceland—I opt for Iceland. This would be preparatory to a Summit. I’m agreeable to that but made it plain we wanted Daniloff returned to us before anything took place. I let the F.M. know I was angry & that I resented their charges that Daniloff was a spy after I had personally given my word that he wasn’t. I gave him a little run down on the difference between our 2 systems & told him they couldn’t understand the importance we place on the individual because they dont have such a feeling. I enjoyed being angry.

Later in the day I went over to E.O.B. and addressed the Presidents of our 101 Black Colleges & U.’s. A few other chores, a bill signing commemoration, meeting with George Shultz—a phone call to Hispanic (U.S.) Chamber of Commerce Convention in Denver & off to Camp David.
