Memorandum of Conversation, by Mr. Leo Pasvolsky, Special Assistant to the Secretary of State
Mr. Wright called on instruction to deliver the attached Aide-Mémoire. I told him that we would study the document and give him our reaction to it soon.
He informed me that the British Government is setting up a Cabinet Sub-committee to pass on the documents in this field which are being prepared by the various experts. He also said that they expect to have their documents ready in four to eight weeks and inquired whether or not we could give them some idea of our time schedule. [Page 633]I replied that we are not in a position to do so at this time, but that we are hard at work.
He inquired whether Dr. Bowman64 would discuss these matters in London. I replied that I was not in a position to tell him anything on that subject.
Bowman, a member of the Department of State Informal Political
Agenda Group concerned with planning for an international
organization, who accompanied Under Secretary of State Stettinius on
a special mission to London in April 1944; see
