WASHINGTON, December 29, 1941
MEMORANDUM FOR THE PRESIDENT:
CONFIDENTIAL AND IN HASTE
I enclose herewith the proposed amendment[s] to our Joint Declaration offered by the Soviet Ambassador for his Government. The Soviet Ambassador tells me that the word "Hitlerism" with his country includes Nazism, Fascism and Japanism, and hence his Government may stick rather strongly for this word. I mention this so you will have the full background. I see no particular objection to the other proposals.
Preamble: . . . "in their own lands as well as in other lands . . . instead of "not only in their own lands, but everywhere."
(2) "Each government pledges itself to cooperate with the governments signatory hereto and not to make a separate armistice or peace with the enemies . . .," instead of the original text.
Final Para: "and contributions in the struggle for victory over Hitlerism," instead of "and contribution towards the defeat of members, etc.[',]
