242. Editorial Note

At 7:30 a.m., Secretary Dulles had breakfast with President Eisenhower at the latter’s villa. The Secretary then met with Merchant, Bowie, MacArthur, and Phleger at his villa, while the President entertained Marshal Zhukov at the Chateau. At 10:30 a.m., the President went to the Palais des Nations for a meeting with Eden and Faure and the three Foreign Ministers to consider Western strategy for the forthcoming restricted session of the conference. No records of any of these meetings, except that between the President and Marshal Zhukov, have been found in Department of State files or at the Eisenhower Library, although all appear as entries in the President’s appointments for July 23 (Eisenhower Library, Whitman File) or in Merchant’s Recollections, page 48, or in Ann Whitman’s Diary of [Page 488] the conference (Eisenhower Library, Whitman File, page 14). A memorandum of the President’s conversation with Zhukov is infra .
