August 4, 1978
1. The only thing of significance he has said was that Frank Hope, Minister of Finance, is going to be replaced. When I asked him who was going to take King & Hope’s jobs, he told me to never mind.
2. My objectivity is on a very low level right now. I have been rather cold to him at times. My comments have been less than loving, to say the least. He woke me up at 3 AM one morning to fuck. He told me he was horny as hell then said, “Hold my cock” (which is the only way he can get a hard-on is to have his cock stroked). I said, “If you are so horny, why do I need to stroke your cock?” He had great difficulty getting a hard-on after that. He told me another time, to come upstairs, that he had something for me. I said, “Let’s get one thing straight. You’re fucking me for you. I can live without it. You’re not doing me any favors.”
I can’t seem to control my cold-fish
sarcasm at times. When I am pissed, that is natural, but cold is too close to reality. It is so close to the end, I don’t want to blow it now.
3. I have been told I am the longest girlfriend he has ever had. I told him I am not a girlfriend but a second wife. He calls me his wife anyway. He said something about what if we were married or get married someday. I told him I like things the way they are. I said that because I should show some measure of independence. That was probably an inappropriate time. I don’t know. I’ll just be glad when it is over.
Nothing of significance to write.
1. Frank Noel, Secretary of Guystac, was arrested today for a foreign currency violation and accepting bribes. He was picked up by the police and taken to jail. He was said to have issued import licenses which enabled 10 to 12 businessmen to draw bank drafts on the Co-op Bank on bogus imported goods. The goods were ordered, they got the drafts directly in their hands, and canceled the orders and deposited the draft in a foreign bank. One businessman said he gave Noel a car as a gift for his favors. Noel called Rex McKay to ask him to defend him. McKay called Burnham and asked if he should. Burnham said no, and asked McKay and Lio [Lionel] Luckhoo to do the prosecutions on behalf of the state. They will probably do all the big scandal prosecution. Noel offered McKay $50,000 retainer. Civil-servants don’t make that kind of money, so he obviously got it from somewhere.
