Dear Margaret

I was delighted to be with you again at Montebello. You played such an important role in our discussions. We might still be drafting the communiqué if it were not for you.

I look forward to the closest possible relations between our two countries. You know, of course, the esteem in [end p1] which I hold our personal friendship.
