During his visit to the U.S. capital, the Prime Minister watched a New York Yankees-Washington Senators baseball game with then-Ambassador to Kabul Louis G. Dreyfus and toured the National Gallery of Art with former Minister Cornelius Van H. Engert. The highlight of the trip was a luncheon
with President Truman at Blair House.
