Editorial Note

The Log, ante, p. 845, records that Roosevelt lunched with Churchill, Soong, and Hopkins. No record of the discussion has been found. According to a memorandum by Hull dated September 2, 1943, Soong (a) thanked Hull on that date for mentioning to Roosevelt at Quebec the problem of “the 40,000 tons of munitions promised China by Canada and later revoked by Canada at the request of Mr. Currie” (see ante, p. 659) and (b) “said that he [Soong] followed this up with a talk with the President which was satisfactory.” See post, p. 1240. The occasion on which Soong discussed this question with Roosevelt has not been definitely identified, but the luncheon meeting of August 23, 1943, appears to have been the most likely opportunity for such a discussion.
