Hopkins Papers

The President’s Special Assistant (Hopkins) to the British Foreign Secretary (Eden)1


Personal and Secret to Anthony Eden from Harry Hopkins

Your message regarding secret matter received. I am going to send you on Monday a full telegram about the matter.2

[Page 11]

On further inquiry I find it has many ramifications and I therefore am anxious to send you my views fully.

Delighted that you returned safely.

  1. The source text is accompanied by the following covering note from Hopkins to Halifax, elated April 15, 1943: “Dear Edward: Gould you send this to Anthony for me?”
  2. Such a communication has not been found and presumably was never sent. According to Eden, p. 658, the later telegram giving Hopkins’ views was never received.
