  4. Cf. the following passage in a personal letter from Mosely, dated at Babelsberg July 24, to E. Allan Lightner, Jr., Secretary of the United States Delegation to the European Advisory Commission (file No. 740.00119 Control (Germany)/7–2445): “With regard to the Agreement on Additional Requirements, I found from Vyshinsky last Thursday that the new title and preamble had to be referred to the Marshal [Generalissimo Stalin] before Saksin could be instructed to sign. Vyshinsky was inclined to revert to the title of ‘General Order’ but I gave him a vigorous sales talk in favor of our preferred title.”
