Remarks at the Welcoming Home Ceremony for the First Lady


October 22, 1987


The President. I'll give her the mike in just a minute, but I'll say welcome home. And in view of all this, I'm trying to see if I can't scare up a little something that I could stay in the hospital for. [Laughter]


The Audience. No!


The President. God bless you all, and thank you very much. And wouldn't you like to thank all these wonderful people too?


Mrs. Reagan. Well, I don't know what to say. Thank you very, very much. I'm very touched -- Foster Grandparent Program people and the Just Say No kids and everybody else. And I'm very, very happy to be home -- very.


The President. Well, bless you all, and I'm going to get her upstairs now.


Mrs. Reagan. Thank you.


The President. Thank you all very much.


Note: The President spoke at 10:20 a.m. from the State Balcony of the White House.
