The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in France (Bullitt)

1559. Your 3023, December 21, 8 p.m. From the President and the Secretary. Daladier is asking us to assume greater responsibility than is possible. Practically speaking it might well react against the very purpose he has in mind. Please make this clear to him and explain why we cannot order you home at this time but will do so when Kennedy60 returns to London.

  1. Joseph P. Kennedy, Ambassador in the United Kingdom.
