Well, I think a lot of this is not terribly --
Well, now you had Mrs. Johnson (Mrs. Lady Bird Johnson)
up here again last fall.
Yes. Well, Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. and Mrs. Steves
and Mrs. and Mrs. Laurance Rockefeller came here to spend
the night on the weekend of the 7th of October. It was
supposed to be a wonderful fall weekend. It was pouring rain,
and poured constantly Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday, we
drove to Albany (N.Y.) in cars. It was so bad we couldn't
even go in a helicopter, which Mr. Rockefeller had. We
had lunch with Governor Carey, and then went to a marvelous
exhibition that they have in the mall, the mall area. A
hugh thing. It's the biggest exhibition area I've ever seen
in my life, with a hugh show of American paintings.
Then we got in a helicopter and went to Woodstock,
Vermont, to Mary Rockefeller's family home. We had an
extremely pleasant few days there.
Well, no, it rained until the day we started to
come home. It was really one of those terrible times, when
you can't control the weather, and it casts a pall on the
pleasure of it.
Well, then, later I gave a pleasant cocktail party in
December and a dinner party for the Blairs, a large dinner
party at La Grenouille (restaurant).
