The Assistant Secretary of State ( Acheson ) to the Director General of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration ( Lehman )
My Dear Governor Lehman: I refer to my letter of September 1, 1944 with reference to the proposals to be presented by the United [Page 345] States Government at the Second Session of the Council. In that letter I transmitted to you a draft of resolution under Item III of the Agenda and stated that I would transmit to you a draft of another resolution under the same item as soon as agreement upon it had been reached with the Government of India.
There is now enclosed a draft of a second resolution to be presented by the United States under Item III of the Agenda dealing with the subject matter of Section 4 of Public Law 267. Agreement upon this proposal has now been arrived at with the Government of India.
