Editorial Note

No official American record of the substance of the discussion at this meeting has been found. The information set forth above is derived from the President’s Appointment Calendar (Roosevelt Papers). According to Pickersgill, pp. 511–513, the post-luncheon conversation (at which Hopkins was not present) was given over to a consideration of postwar international organizations. Roosevelt also took the opportunity to suggest the raising of the Canadian Legation in Washington to Embassy rank.
