General Marshall to Lieutenant General Albert C. Wedemeyer

52. Refer your 20060: I am proposing to Generalissimo immediate issue of public order for demilitarization of a certain number of [Page 190] divisions during next 6 months, stating rather precisely the schedule. Also indicating that further demilitarization and demobilization will follow.

How many divisions might be nominated for next 6 months? Rush reply.

Farther reference your 20060: please give me a concise statement of matter reference Sixth Army incident and including your general view on demobilization that I can quote to Generalissimo.
