Dear Ivan:

We had an extremely successful meeting with the President-elect
today. We were scheduled to spend an hour with him and he kept
us for an hour and a half.

Mr. Nixon said that at the appropriate time he would like to have
a meeting in the White House which would mobilize business support
for the Coalition. He also said that he would like to have us
meet with the Cabinet members who make up his new Urban Affairs
Council. And he asked Arthur Flemming and myself to give our
advice to Pat Moynihan on the organization of the Urban Affairs

The President-elect listened attentively to what we had to say
and repeatedly expressed his cordial interest in working with us.
He referred to the Coalition as ''the key organization in the
private sector," and also said it was the first organizational
group that he had met with since his election.



John W. Gardner
