Telegram from WSC to Field Marshal Jan Smuts [Prime Minister of South Africa] (San Francisco [United States]) marked "Top Secret and Personal" stating that as a South African Division is in Italy he should see WSC's communications with President Harry Truman [on the dispute with Yugoslavia over territories in north-east Italy and southern Austria]; and expressing his enthusiasm for Truman's firm line on the matter even if it means a "showdown" with the Soviet Union.
