The Ambassador in Mexico (Messersmith) to the Secretary of State

343. For the Acting Secretary from Secretary Stettinius. Please transmit the following message to Judge Rosenman in London:

“Your message has just reached me in Mexico City. I shall not reply in any form to Eden’s letter and memorandum of February 7 and 11 written to me at Yalta until full consultation with you. This, of course, can be postponed until your return if your trip is not to be extended beyond the time we discussed when we last talked. On the other hand, if you now plan to be gone an extended period, you might give me a suggestion along the lines you feel it would be appropriate for me to respond to Eden.

We have had a great success in Mexico City. I send to you my warmest cordial greetings.”
