Congress in recess for the week—it almost seems as if you can feel it in the air. Nancy off to N.Y.—doing the “Good Morning Am.” show tomorrow—all 2 hours of it. N.S.C. brief this A.M. Bill Wilson was in from Italy. Attended the funeral for Cardinal Cooke. Returning immediately to Rome. Foreign Minister Wu (P.R.C.) in for a visit. Everyone felt he probably wouldn’t raise the Taiwan question. That’s the 1st thing he did raise. I repeated our position & we went on from there. All in all a rather pleasant visit—no strain. After an issues lunch came upstairs to Study & caught up on necessary reading—secret reports on Chinese nuclear capability, defense study on possible cooperation from Israelis if Soviets attacked Middle East. A few other items I could never have made much headway with in the Oval office. Tonite 1st game of World Series in Baltimore—I’m going. Only way I can is to sit in the owners enclosed box. It was a great game only we had to leave at the end of the 7th with the score 1 to 1. There were no walks, only 6 hits & 2 of them Homers.
