To Winston S. Churchill

November 7, 1944 Radio Washington, D.C.


Please deliver the following personal message immediately to Prime Minister from General Marshall:1

“Reference your OZ 6528:2 Your personal message to me regarding Sir John is acknowledged with deep appreciation. Few will ever realize the debt our countries owe him for his unique and profound influence toward the cooperation of our forces. To be very frank and personal, I doubt if you or your Cabinet associates fully realize the loss you have suffered, and the United States also has suffered for that matter, in purely post war adjustments by his death. I am hopeful that his interment in the American Valhalla of Arlington where his services may be memorialized will result in a continuation of his great and beneficent influence in the troubled years to come.”3
