740.00116 European War 1939/1434
The First Secretary of the British Embassy (Gore-Booth) to the Legal Adviser (Hackworth)
Dear Mr. Hackworth: I have pleasure in communicating to you herewith some further material from the Foreign Office49 in regard to the punishment of war criminals.[Page 1318]
It occurred to me in looking at the correspondence that our points of view are now pretty close and that what may be needed is a little careful drafting. Would it perhaps save time and trouble if you or your deputy could call together a small meeting of representatives of the War and Navy Departments and this Embassy to prepare a draft? It could then be submitted as an agreed draft to higher authority in the different departments, and, if it appeared necessary, by telegraph to the United Kingdom Government.
Yours very sincerely,
- Supra. ↩
