My dear Mr. President:

I am submitting to you herewith a suggested answer to Mr. Churchill's message to you of September 22.

General Marshall has told me that the loading of these rifles is going on day and night and that the details for the transfer of the rifles to the British Purchasing Commission are being concluded through the U. S. Steel Corporation.

Believe me

Faithfully yours,

Summer Welles


The President,

The White House.
