Editorial Note

During the meetings of the Foreign Ministers of the United States, the United Kingdom, France, and the Federal Republic of Germany in London, February 13–19, Secretary Acheson and Foreign Secretary Eden recommended to Adenauer and Schuman that they attempt to come to an agreement on the Saar, and stated that they would for the time being confine themselves to offering their good offices for this effort. A preliminary conversation between Adenauer and Schuman was held in London at which it was agreed to continue the talks in March.
