161. Message from President Kennedy to Prime Minister Macmillan, January 131

[Facsimile Page 1]

My Dear Friend

I entirely agree that we should stick together on the test ban and I am asking Rusk and Foster to concert most effective way of arranging this at first meeting tomorrow. Our first thought is that we might move from talks between co-chairmen to informal consultation among the three members of test ban subcommittee but Rusk or Foster will discuss details with David Gore tomorrow and in this connection I venture the hope that David may be given this assignment on your side.
