War Department is of opinion that such an agreement as that proposed is desirable both as a practical solution of questions that have arisen or that may hereafter arise by reason of the presence of American forces on British soil, as a result of the present war.

Communicate foregoing to Foreign Office and request it to submit at an early date a draft of proposed agreement for consideration by Department.
