The United States Political Adviser for Germany (Murphy) to the Secretary of State

730. We interpret your 594, October 3, as authorizing completion of movement of Foreign Office documents and personnel from Marburg to MCC at Fürstenhagen. This move is recommended for the following principal reasons:

Greater security and administrative facilities including microfilming.
More efficient processing of documents and personnel by combined British-American teams.
The fact that several adjoining bulker [sic] or buildings will be used will facilitate carrying out of Dept’s directive on this project as outlined in your cable 564 dated Sept 28.

Unless directed otherwise I will direct that movement be resumed on Oct 15. British will be informed of Dept’s directive.
