Bush titled: "Vice President Bush's Visit to Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Yugoslavia, Romania, Hungary and Austria", about 80pp. 4to., in a three ring binder with dividers by country, covering Bush's trip of Sep. 11-21, 1983. The briefing opens with a map showing the air route, distances and flight times. Other data includes maps of each country, notes on gifts and customs, health and medical information, demographic and political data, biographies of key government personnel, etc. A small bound booklet sets forth motorcade assignments, scheduled meetings and attendees, hotel room assignments, attendees at dinners, etc. Also included (and totally unrelated) are four letters sent to Bush asking for money, autographs, etc., including a bizarre letter asking to be appointed official cartoonist and including a copy of a very bizarre 20p. cartoon featuring "Harry Mantis and Kickapoo Pony".
