President Roosevelt to Prime Minister Churchill 1
To the Prime Minister, Quadrant . Number 349.
In response to Eisenhower’s Naf 3422 (Copy of which has been sent to you by the British Staff Mission) I have sent him a message3 authorizing him to proceed with military terms, obtain signature, and then give Italian representative the comprehensive terms. I have taken this action because time is of the essence.4
