The Acting Secretary of State to the Minister in Egypt ( Kirk )

323. Your 351, February 16, 9 a.m. Personal for the Minister from Wallace Murray. I regret that the military authorities have [Page 68] found it impossible to make available the two planes desired for the use of Misr Air Lines. I am convinced, however, that the military authorities have gone into the question very carefully but found it impossible to furnish the planes at the present time because of the very urgent need of our Armed Forces for planes of this type.
