Copy of a telegram from WSC to Dwight Eisenhower, President of the United States, marked "top secret" in which he explains why he sent a telegram to [Vyacheslav] Molotov [Soviet Foreign Minister] without submitting it to Eisenhower; asks him to re-read recent correspondence; re-affirms his conviction that there should be a summit meeting with the Soviet Union; discusses Molotov's reply and the likelihood that the Soviet Union may welcome domestic prosperity and international contacts; and comments on grave military events in Vietnam. He concludes by promising to keep Eisenhower fully informed and to wait for a response before making an official approach to Molotov. Typescript.
