Memorandum for the Chief of Staff
Attached is a draft of General Ismay’s notes of today’s conference approved by General Brooke.1 Attached also is a draft of a rewrite based on your notes to General Handy. General Handy and I believe this redraft is more in line with your ideas as to the points on which we should agree. We will not be able to reconcile the two drafts with the British. General Brooke suggests that we wait until tomorrow before discussing the matter.
