The Secretary of State to the President
Memorandum for the President
In line with our personal conversation about answers to questions that Churchill might ask, I herewith attach several documents which deal with the titles indicated. I believe they will be of some use to you.
- The Department of State file copy of this memorandum bears the following manuscript endorsement: “Sent to the White House 1:20 p.m. Sept. 8. J[ames] E B[rown] Jr.” (740.0011 E.W./9–644)↩
- Annexes 4 and 5 to this memorandum are printed here. For annexes 1–3 and 6–10, see post, pp. 190, 192, 194, 207, 212, 214, 229, and 172, respectively.↩
- John G. Winant. Concerning the work of the European Advisory Commission in 1944, see Foreign Relations, 1944, vol. i, pp. 1 ff.↩
- The British aide-mémoire referred to, which was delivered to the Department of State on August 23, 1944, is not printed (840.20/8–1944). On August 25 Hull sent copies of the aide-mémoire to the War and Navy Departments and to the Joint Chiefs of Staff, with a request for the views of those organizations. Replies were not received until after the Second Quebec Conference, and no evidence has been found to indicate that this subject was discussed at Quebec.↩
- Concerning the United States role in equipping French forces, see Marcel Vigneras, Rearming the French (Washington: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1957), in the series United States Army in World War II: Special Studies.↩
