Roosevelt Papers

Prime Minister Churchill’s Principal Private Secretary ( Martin ) to the President’s Naval Aide ( Brown )

Admiral Wilson Brown. In confirmation of our telephone conversation, the Prime Minister has been informed by Mr. Mackenzie [Page 1302] King that he has no objection to the terms of the proposed statement on U–Boat Warfare in August.

I should be grateful if you will let me know whether the draft is approved on your side, so that simultaneous publication on September 10 can be arranged.1

J[ohn] M[iller] Martin
