1. The first five paragraphs of your P. 74  miss the point of my No. 47  which was as follows:
(a) Paragraph 2 shows that according to your P. 64  the suggestion for the retention of the 9th Division originated from the President. 
(b) Paragraph 3 shows that according to Dominions Office No. 311  the President's message agreed to the proposal that had been put to him.
(c) Paragraph 4 draws your attention to this difference and indicates in view of the decisions already taken by the Australian Government that the disposition of the A.I.F. is not a matter for bilateral discussion between the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom  and the President. It is one for the Pacific Council.
This is an illustration of our viewpoint on a Pacific Council in Washington where we would have a direct contact with the President. As indicated in my No. 47 no decision has been reached, the matter having been referred to Evatt  for discussion with the President.
2. I do not understand your references to Churchill and concealment of his discussion with the President. No one made any such suggestion.
