The Secretary of State to the President
I am attaching a copy of a message which Prime Minister Attlee has sent to you via the British Embassy. This is the message which I discussed with you over the telephone this evening. I am also attaching a copy of my message to Mr. Bevin1 which is referred to in the message Mr. Attlee has sent you.
We will endeavor to have a reply prepared for your consideration tomorrow morning and will coordinate our efforts with the Department of National Defense.
