I am most grateful to you for your number 308.92

I am in complete accord with your suggestions, which will provide a solution for our difficulties in Spain. As soon as I hear from you that you have issued the directives to Generals Eisenhower and Giraud and to American Ambassador in Madrid and Lisbon, I will give complementary instructions to our authorities.
