The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in France (Caffery)

2791. For Murphy. Press telegrams received here recently report a campaign launched by the Warsaw Government alleging that British, and by inference American, authorities are refusing to permit Poles in western Europe who desire to return to Poland to return. All indications here point to rising tempo of this campaign. It is possible that this campaign has already come to your attention. Kindly consult SHAEF to ensure that those Poles who may desire to return to Poland immediately are permitted to do so.
