The Ambassador in the United Kingdom (Winant) to the Secretary of State : [Extract]

London, August l, 1941-midnight.
[Received August1-10: 14 p.m.]

3366. For the President. Re your message 2600, July 14, directed to the Former Naval Person and with reference to my message 3308 - of July 30.(1) In the next to the last paragraph you asked for an over all statement "making it clear that no post war peace commitments as to territories, populations or economies have been given" and stating that you could back his statement in very strong terms, but adding that there is "no hurry about this". For your information, both Mr. Eden's and the Prime Minister's promised statements have not as yet been forthcoming. I believe with little difficulty you could arrange the language of the statement to be made by the Prime Minister perhaps indicating to him the substance of your supporting statement.
