Editorial Note

During the morning of Saturday, October 23, Dulles, accompanied by General Gruenther, spoke with Eden and Macmillan concerning the stationing of their troops in Trieste, and the British gave the impression that these troops would not be sent to Austria but would be brought home. Dulles then spoke with Eden about the British pledge to help finance UNRRA. Summaries of the discussion of these two subjects were transmitted to the Department of State in telegrams Dulte 14 and 15 from Paris, October 23; telegram Dulte 14 is printed in the compilation on Austria in volume VII. Telegram Dulte 15, not printed, is in Department of State file 357.AD/10–2354.
