54.02 (Donovan memo to Jackson, 26 October)
Justice Jackson; General Betts; Bedel Smith; General Eisenhower
This brief memo reports that General Eisenhower has offered "all assurances of help" through Bedel Smith. General Betts is Donovan's source for Bedel's message. The nature of the help is not described and the problem is not named; given the date of this memo and the concerns expressed in contemporaneous documents, the terms of directive JCS 1023/10 might be the issue. This document is a handwritten original on lined, browning paper. It is marked "Copy," however, which suggests that Donovan might not have written it himself.
