The Secretary of State to the Acting Secretary of State ( Grew )1

top secret

7016. For Acting Secretary of State only from Secretary Stettinius, for delivery to Assistant Secretary of State Eyes Only.

I hope you will hold up any action with regard to proposed joint statement on Italy2 prepared by the Combined Civil Affairs Committee. I have not seen the text but feeling here is that its issuance in its present form would be most unfortunate. Please cable full text and status.

All-State Horseshoe.
