No. 792
The Assistant Secretary of State ( Dunn ) to the Secretary of the Soviet Delegation ( Novikov )

Dear Mr. Novikov : I refer to your note of July 25, 19451 with which you enclosed an aide-mémoire concerning activities in the British, American and French zones of occupation in Germany and Austria considered by you to be unfriendly to the Soviet Union.

I have referred this matter to the appropriate military authorities of the American Government in order that information may be obtained upon which an answer, so far as the American zone is concerned, may be prepared.2

Sincerely yours,

James Clement Dunn
