Dear Mr. President,

Owing to the fact that as explained in Lord Lothian's letter of December 8th the Prime Minister's letter to you of December 7th was sent to the Embassy from London by telegram, a few mistakes occurred in the text. The Prime Minister is anxious that these should be corrected and that alterations shown in the attached list should be made in his original letter. I hope therefore that you will be good enough to arrange for these amendments to be inserted in the text of the letter as sent you by Lord Lothian.

Believe me,

Dear Mr. President,
Yours sincerely,

Neville Butler

The Honourable
Franklin D. Roosevelt,
President of the United States of America,
Washington, D.C.
