Editorial Note

Roosevelt made no record of the discussion at this meeting. On May 24, 1943, Presidential Assistant Secretary Early announced that Churchill had returned to the White House the previous evening after having spent the weekend as guest of the British Embassy. According to the Early announcement, Roosevelt and Churchill conferred together until 2:30 in the morning. It is likely that at this meeting, Roosevelt and Churchill took up the Memorandum Prepared by the Subcommittee on Territorial Problems, May 22, 1943, post, p. 338.
