Memorandum of Conversation, by the Acting Secretary of State

The British Ambassador called to see me this morning at his request. The Ambassador told me that the Portuguese Prime Minister, Dr. Salazar, had informed the British Ambassador in Lisbon of his great satisfaction and pleasure with the letter which the President had sent to him. The British Government felt that the President’s letter had completely removed the misunderstandings which had occurred and had greatly facilitated the British policy in Portugal.
