2849. Please refer to a telegraphic instruction sent to you today [July 30?]21 requesting you to address a note to the Foreign Minister22 of the provisional government of Czechoslovakia which constitutes recognition by the United States of that government. The President has asked me to request you personally to inform Mr. Churchill of the contents of the aide-mémoire which you are requested to deliver with the note. The President is particularly anxious to have the British Government informed of the position of this Government as set forth in this aide-mémoire.
