Yes...who, as you know, is a great favorite of mine. Carol
Channing was there, and she entertained at the dinner at the Library.
There were 7- or 800 people. Leontyne Price also came. Mrs.
Johnson is a great pleasure to be with, and there were many very
pleasant, intelligent people on the board of the Foundation, including
the present publisher and editor of the Los Angeles Times, who's
name is Tom Johnson, who was executive assistant for Lyndon Johnson
during most of the time he was President and until his death.
Is he any relation?
No relation. Extraordinary, isn't it?
Has Mrs. Johnson been up here recently? She used to come to
New York. She used to come and visit you in Amenia.
She's coming in October. I invited her to go to the theater.
I don't know what the theater will be interesting to see then. I'm
still planting hundreds of roses at my place in Greenwich, and also
I'm making English borders on both sides of my property.
How many acres do you have there?
Seven. It's not vast at all.
Well, it's enough to take care of gardenerwise, isn't it?
