Scope and Contents

Letter from WSC to King George VI about the situation in North Africa stating that: he is not seriously worried by the events in North Africa and does not doubt the loyalty of Robert Murphy [United States political representative in North Africa]; that the divisions between the French are due to General de Gaulle's hostility to Britain and that his refusal to make a friendly settlement at Casablanca [Morocco] angered the United States; that Husky [capture of Sicily] is due to commence in June and that although the United States had suffered a recent defeat this was due to lack of experience which the 10th and 30th Corps, now in Tunisia, did not suffer from. Reference to "Boniface" is crossed through. [Signature in typescript. Copy with annotations].
