Scope and Contents

Telegram from WSC to President Roosevelt marked "Personal and Top Secret" expressing his concern at a "deterioration" in the Soviet attitude since [the] Yalta [Conference]: arguing that Vyacheslav Molotov [Soviet Union Foreign Minister] is stalling over Poland while the Lublin Committee consolidates its position; that if they fail to get a satisfactory solution to the Polish problems, then they risk losing all influence in Eastern Europe; that it is time to send a message from the two of them to Marshal Stalin on Poland; listing other examples of Soviet behaviour he believes contrary to the "spirit of Yalta"; and commenting on the detrimental effect of these conflicts and Molotov's absence from the San Francisco [United States] Conference on the prospects for a future world organisation.
