351. Personal for Wallace Murray.6 Would you be inclined to expedite favorable action on the project described in my 300, February 8, 3 p.m. This looks to me like a legitimate way to furnish in wartime an Egyptian interest, the accomplishment of which would be ascribed to the good will of our Government only and so would contribute a much needed enhancement of exclusively American prestige in Egypt.
