Editorial Note

The information set forth above regarding this meeting is derived from the list of functions that Hopkins attended during the First Washington Conference (Hopkins Papers).

No record of the discussion has been found. It appears, however, that the St. Pierre-Miquelon problem may have been discussed, for in the early afternoon a new version of the draft declaration on St. Pierre-Miquelon, said to have been “prepared at the White House between the President and Mr. Churchill”, was telephoned to the American Minister in Canada (Moffat) by Mr. Dunn of the Department of State. (See Foreign Relations, 1942, vol. ii, p. 656.) The revised text of the draft communiqué is printed post, p. 389.
