In order to avoid suspicion that would have ensued from the presence of a long line of limousines, we all went in my car - John McCone, Maxwell Taylor, the driver, and myself all crowded together in the front seat, and six others sitting in back. We explained our recommendations to the President. At the beginning the meeting seemed to proceed in an orderly and satisfactory way. However, as people talked, as the President raised probing questions, minds and opinions began to change again, and not only on small points.
