March 31, 1967. 8:45 PM. LBJ and a number of Latin American ambassadors are aboard Air Force One travelling to Texas for a weekend visit. The party includes representatives from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Uruguay, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela.
Yolanda Boozer makes a brief speech in Spanish, at LBJ’s request, above, and LBJ makes a brief statement himself upon arrival:
We have had a very delightful trip from Washington coming to this beautiful city of San Antonio.
We have visited individually with most of our neighbors in this hemisphere.
We have talked about our problems and our future.
Now we are going to enjoy a wonderful Texas weekend here as your guests to visit with you and exchange views about what is to come.
