The meeting was held in Ambassador Leddy's office. An attached covering letter from Coffin to Bell, February 10, reads in part: “We were pleased to see Burke's receptivity once he had clearly in mind the type of relationship between IBRD and DAC which we were talking about. It is my thought that this would be useful background in continuing discussions with the Bank and with officials and delegations of DAC countries.” In a handwritten note to Gaud on this letter, Bell wrote: “This sounds very constructive.”

The second note indicated that copies had been distributed to Gaud and Schaetzel and asked whether, in lieu of a reply, Coffin's letter should be put in Bell's briefing book, presumably the one for his upcoming European trip. The “yes” on the approval line has been checked.


103. Letter From the Administrator of the Agency for International Development (Bell) to the Permanent Representative to the Development Assistance Committee (Coffin)

Source: Washington National Records Center, RG 286, DAC Material: FRC 70 A 5922, Letters and Memoranda to and from Coffin. Confidential. Attached to this letter are several memoranda. One is a February 9 action memorandum from Bartlett Harvey, Acting Assistant Administrator for Program (AID), to Bell, summarizing the contents and recommending that Bell sign the letter to Coffin, which Schaetzel and Hirschtritt (Treasury) had cleared. Another is a February 4 memorandum from Schaetzel to Chenery, in which Schaetzel said that he would have emphasized more strongly EUR's firm commitment to support AID in the future on DAC matters and concluded: “At the risk of stating the obvious I wanted to make the foregoing comments but not to propose that there should be any change at this end in the letter itself.” In an attached February 8 note to Harvey, Bell wrote concerning Schaetzel's memorandum: “Good point. Let's reflect in letter.” In a February 13 memorandum to Bell, also attached, Harvey reported that he had asked EUR to redraft the letter. No changes were made in the letter, however, first because the EUR officer assigned to revise it fell sick, and then because Ruth Phillips, the OECD desk officer in EUR, pointed out that Schaetzel in his memorandum had said to send the letter as is. (Ibid.; and attached memorandum from Richard B. Palmer to Harvey and Aliber, February 13)
