740.00119 Control (Bulgaria)/2–2745: Telegram

The United States Representative in Bulgaria ( Barnes ) to the Secretary of State

107. General Crane and I strongly support the views set forth in Ambassador Harriman’s telegram No. 541, February 24, 4 p.m., sent to the Department. Our views with respect to minimum requirements for effective American participation in the Allied Control Commission here are set forth in telegram No. 1254, February 26, top secret, from General Crane to the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

We believe that it would be most useful if we were supplied with the text of the British proposals for the period after an armistice with Germany referred to in paragraph (b) of Ambassador Harriman’s telegram No. 541.

Repeated to Moscow as No. 39.
