The Secretary of State to the United States Representative at the United Nations (Stettinius)

Dear Ed: I have been giving thought to the question of the organization and operation of our mission to the United Nations as a result of our various talks on this subject and conversations I have had recently with Mr. Winant.

It seems to me that it is important that this matter be clarified. Accordingly, I am sending you the attached memorandum on that subject as expressive of my views.53 I would appreciate it if you would bring this study to Mr. Winant’s attention when he arrives in New York.

I will of course be glad to have any comments which occur either to you or to Mr. Winant on this subject and I recognize that the whole question must be subject to developments as we gather experience in this field.

Sincerely yours,

James F. Byrnes
