The Ambassador in the United Kingdom ( Winant ) to the President 1


2196. To the President from Winant.

This afternoon when I was talking with the Prime Minister he said he wanted me to let you know that the coming election here would in no way interfere with an early meeting with you and Marshal Stalin. He told me during our conversation that if arrangements could be made for a meeting by the middle of June or before July 5th he would probably take Attlee with him. He added that there were no differences between them insofar as international relations were concerned.
