Dear Mr. McDonald,
I am grateful to you for sending me the address by Mr. John Foster Dulles on the reparation problem. I hope soon to be writing to you again in reference to a proposed Conference in London in the Autumn.
I sincerely hope that America may be able to disentangle herself from the chains of the Treaties, and be able to give real assistance in promoting a real peace in Europe. We are making progress in England, but before all things I hope for a [cooperation] between America and England in a common peace policy.
