The Assistant Chief of the Division of the American Republics (Daniels) to the American Member of the Inter-American Neutrality Committee (Fenwick), Then at Bryn Mawr

My Dear Dr. Fenwick: I acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated December 9, 1941 outlining your personal observations on the possible extension of the present functions of the Inter-American Neutrality Committee, and possible long-range developments of the work of the Committee.

I think your letter is most helpful in the consideration which the Department is giving to this matter, and will constitute an excellent basis for further action. I understand that you have already gone over the general question with Mr. Welles, and that he has given you his preliminary reaction.

Sincerely yours,

Paul C. Daniels
