Roosevelt Papers

The Presidents Special Assistant ( Hopkins ) to the President

Memorandum for the President:

You will recall that he, in effect, asked for instructions and I gather [Page 253] that the joint view of the British and ourselves is that Bullitt should not stir that up at the moment.2
