Elvis arrived in Washington and was picked up at the airport. He dropped off his letter to the president at 6.30 a.m. Then he checked into the Hotel Washington again. Elvis tried to get in touch with the BNDD's director John Ingersoll. This failed, but there was a call from President Nixon's deputy counsel, asking Elvis to meet him in 45 minutes at the Old Executive Office Building on the White House grounds. There Elvis, Sonny and Jerry met with President Nixon. To everyone's surprise, except for Elvis' , they really hit it off, and Elvis left the following day with that what he came for: the BNDD badge.
