61.06 (Donovan memo to Wheeler, 31 October 1945)
This memo is an apparent response to a prior question. In vague, rather awkward prose, Donovan alludes to "larger questions," to be addressed in the future, related to prosecuting major war criminals. The memo is initialed, "per JES" on the lower left portion of the page. The document is a handwritten manuscript of very good legibility on very brown, ruled paper.
