The White House

Dear Margaret:

Thank you for your message of February 10 concerning my visit in June to the United Kingdom. I am taking advantage of Mike Deaver’s survey trip to send you this reply to your warm letter.

I am looking forward with great anticipation to my stay in Britain at the kind invitation of Her Majesty The Queen. Between what are bound to be two hectic summit meetings, it will be a pleasure to take a break with good friends in England. I look forward to our discussions there on the many issues before us and to once more enjoying the beauty and hospitality of Britain.
