The Ambassador in the United Kingdom (Winant) to the Secretary of State

6002. Personal for the Secretary from Phillips. I learned today that the Foreign Office has received a full report from the British Embassy in Washington of the Drew Pearson article referred to in your No. 5828, 25 July, midnight, and are considerably annoyed by it (which does not surprise me). In view of this fact, it would probably [Page 240] not be opportune at this time for me to carry out the suggestion contained in my No. 5810, 22 July, 6 p.m. of expressing to the Secretary of State for India our interest in the Indian situation.
