JFK was in D.C and called the British Ambassador and old friend David Ormsby-Gore into the Oval Office to discuss his aggravation with the developments in the nuclear arms negotiations going on in Moscow. Reports were returning to the White House that the French were maneuvering possibly to cut the Anglo-American allies out of a possible deal with the Soviets.
After discussing things with Ormsby-Gore, Kennedy cabled British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan to object to specific language being considered for the final agreement.
JFK also greeted a boys group in the Rose Garden, where he shook hands with a lad from Arkansas by the name of Bill Clinton
