The Counselor of Embassy in France (Murphy), Temporarily at Algiers, to the Secretary of State
[Received December 10.]
Sir: I have the honor to enclose, in original and translation, a copy of a memorandum on the subject of French policy taken by General Weygand to Vichy. He planned to read this statement of his conception of what French general policy should be, with particular regard to French Africa, to the Council of Ministers at Vichy during the course of his present visit.
The Department will find the enclosure, I am sure, an interesting resume of the current views of General Weygand which are shared by some of his associates.
