The Secretary of State to the British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Bevin)

very confidential and personal

My Dear Mr. Bevin: I am glad that you raise this question, in your letter of June 13,1 of Berlin’s stocks. This is a matter which is also under examination by our authorities in Germany and on which I have asked for a report.

On the basis of my present information, present plans for the United States Air Force will put into Berlin the American portion of the airlift tonnage necessary to meet the requirements stated in your letter.

I shall be glad to discuss this with you at a convenient moment after I have received additional information from our military authorities.

Yours sincerely,

Dean Acheson
