Cablegram 145  LONDON, 22 June 1944, 4 p.m.
PERSONAL AND MOST SECRET
Following from the Prime Minister to Dr. Evatt.
1. Delighted to have your message of 14th June.  You may be
sure we shall never overlook the fact that a strong France is a
vital element in the future security of Europe in which you are so
definitely interested. We are still toiling to get an agreement
with de Gaulle on the outstanding points. Though I am quite sure
he is no friend of Britain, I am still persevering to bring about
a good arrangement all round.
2. Kindest regards from Brendan  and me to you and W. S.  I
had hoped to meet him when he was in this country but so much was
going on and he was gone before I could contact him. I hope you
will pay us another visit before long.
