Memorandum of Conversation, by the Acting Secretary of State

The British Ambassador called to see me this morning. The Ambassador stated that he had just received a cable from his Foreign Office stating that the British Government agreed to the proposals of [Page 692] this Government concerning the manner of determining the Lease-Lend material to be furnished Turkey.

I said that I was very glad to receive this information and that I trusted that his Embassy would immediately discuss these questions with Mr. Acheson.
