Editorial Note

The Log, ante, p. 843, records that Eden and Mackenzie King joined Roosevelt and Churchill after dinner and “discussed affairs of state until a late hour.” According to Pickersgill, pp. 553–554, Mackenzie King joined Roosevelt, Churchill, and Eden at about 10:45 p.m., and the discussion, which lasted until 2 a.m. on August 22, dealt with postwar world organization, the international position of China, and recognition of the French Committee of National Liberation. It is [Page 929] possible that the joint Roosevelt–King press release of August 22 on the establishment of the Joint War Aid Committee, United States–Canada, post, p. 1119, was approved at this time. No official record of the discussions at this meeting has been found.
