Editorial Note

According to a parenthetical explanation in the minutes of the Hull–Eden meeting of August 20, ante, p. 914, Roosevelt spoke at this dinner meeting of “the four-power arrangement in the form of a draft declaration” (see ante, p. 692). This subject is mentioned also by Eden, p. 487, who indicates that the discussion also touched on the proposed tripartite meeting with the Soviet Union. Eden states that Hull left about midnight. The Log, ante, p. 843, lists the persons present at dinner and states that Roosevelt and Churchill “held their usual lengthy discussions after dinner and both retired very late.” No further record of those discussions has been found.
