President Roosevelt to the Secretary of State 19

I have read the memorandum20 with great interest and it has my approval. I like the plans for discussion and the preliminary outline of the proposals for a general international organization. Good luck!

Franklin D. Roosevelt
  1. President Roosevelt had left Washington aboard the Presidential Special on July 13 and returned on August 17. For an itinerary of this trip, see Foreign Relations, The Conferences at Malta and Yalta, p. 3, footnote 3.
  2. Reference is made to both the memorandum of July 11, p. 647, on recommended arrangements for the Dumbarton Oaks Conversations and the July 6 draft of Tentative Proposals handed to President Roosevelt on July 12. The final draft of the “Possible Plan” of July 6, with one exception, the submission of the section regarding international trusteeship, was identical with that transmitted after approval by the President on July 15, to the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union, and China on July 18, 1944, infra.
