The Secretary of State to the Chargé in the United Kingdom (Matthews)

1209. Your 1328 February 20. We naturally are anxious to avoid any discrimination between the Fighting French and the representatives of the North African authorities in this matter and we would therefore be glad to receive information concerning any specific cases [Page 208] which the French National Committee may wish to bring to our attention involving the recruiting of Fighting French personnel by General Giraud’s representatives here.
