Dear Ron,

I was delighted to hear from Sir Nicholas Henderson that you are able to accept the invitation of Her Majesty The Queen to visit Britain and stay at Windsor Castle between the Economic and NATO Summits in June.

I realise that your stay is bound to be a short one, but we are greatly looking forward to greeting you here, and I particularly welcome the opportunity your visit will provide to talk over some of the issues which concern us both.

I understand that Mike Deaver will be coming over here shortly. We plan to discuss with him the details of the programme which should be arranged for your visit and any other related matters.

Yours ever,
