811B.001 Quezon, Manuel L./165

Memorandum by the Adviser on Political Relations ( Hornbeck ) to the Chief of Staff ( Marshall )

Reference, your memorandum for Mr. Hornbeck and Mr. Hamilton of February 2 and its enclosure.

It occurs to Mr. Hamilton and me to ask: Ought not this matter now be taken up again with the President?

Presumably the question of making plans and issuing instructions would lie with you and Admiral King.32

Mr. Hamilton and I are at your service and would be glad to come to you for conference should you so desire or to collaborate with you in any manner which may be helpful to you.

  1. Adm. Ernest J. King, Commander in Chief of the U. S. Fleet.
