Telegram of June 17th, 1940


MOST IMMEDIATE
 My telegram No. 1148.
 I am deeply sensible of the President's desire to help us. Please tell him that most effective thing he can do is to let us have destroyers immediately. Our need of them is vital and their addition to our fleet might be decisive. It is most important that not a day should be lost.
