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

1449. From Reber. Reference Department’s 1139, March 23. Various proposals for food supply to occupied Holland have been discussed with the Dutch Government. This specific proposal was not mentioned in the last talks. SHAEF has, however, agreed in principle to food shipments to Dutch territory occupied by the Germans and would raise no objection to the present proposal.

In this connection it is noted that the question of replenishment will be considered as part of the overall supply problem which meets with SHAEF’s approval. [Reber.]
