Thank you so much for all the arrangements which made my visit to Williamsburg at once so enjoyable and so rewarding. It gave me the greatest pleasure to see you and to talk with you again. Thank you for setting time aside for our private discussions and thank you for conducting the formal talks towards such a successful outcome. The Summit’s conclusions on economic questions and its statement on defence and disarmament will do much for the vitality, cohesion and strength of the free world in the years ahead. I hope they bring to the United States and to you personally encouragement and support in your leadership of the Western Alliance. We in Britain remain deeply indebted to America and its President.
Finally, may I thank you for your handsome gift. This elegant bowl captures so well the beauty and calm of Williamsburg which will remain in my mind for years to come.
