The Secretary of State to the Consul General at Algiers (Cole)

287. From Murphy. Your 616, September 19, 11 a.m. Please advise Saint that this information is useful and that we would like any additional data he may obtain regarding Noguès’ present visit to Vichy.

Any effort which can be made tactfully to ridicule the rumors of an American landing would be appreciated. [Murphy.]
