The Secretary of State to the Minister in Ireland (Gray)

17. The Department approves the first paragraph of your 36, April 8, 2 p.m. and instructs you in the sense of this first paragraph.

You should lose no opportunity generally to impress upon your Irish contacts the scope and determination with which this Government is pursuing its policy against the forces of aggression and you may emphasize the profound belief of the President, backed by public opinion in this country, that the democratic forces of the world will win through to final victory.
