The Chargé in Brazil (Daniels) to the Acting Secretary of State

504. From Secretary Stettinius. Your number 60 of February 1726 refers to the agreed voting provisions as “the compromise”. I have been impressing on the British and others with whom I have discussed the voting procedure the fact that it is not a compromise but the preferred American position which after careful consideration was adopted by the President and proposed by him on December 5 to Marshal Stalin and Prime Minister Churchill. It seems to me that particularly with respect to our public relations this is an important point. [Stettinius.]

  1. Telegram 444 (message No. 60), February 17, 1 p.m., for the Secretary, not printed; the Acting Secretary reported on Congressional consultations and Indicated that Senatorial groups were “well satisfied with the Compromise”. (740.0011 EW/2–1745)
