Scope and Contents

Copy of a letter from WSC to "Ike" [Dwight Eisenhower], President of the United States marked "most secret and personal" in which he explains that he suffered a stroke which paralysed his left side and affected his speech and so was not able to accompany him as planned. He discusses a previous stroke in 1949 which has been kept secret, and hopes that he will be able to continue to pursue his "theme". He also discusses negotiations with Egypt and expresses confidence in [5th Lord] Salisbury [earlier Lord Cranborne] and the possibility of a Four Power summit meeting and change of policy by the Soviet Union.
