My dear Mrs. Roosevelt:

I am pleased to inform you that I have appointed you one o f the representatives of the United States to the first part of the first session of the General Assembly of the United Nations to be held in London early in January 1946. A complete list of this Government's Delegation is enclosed herewith.

The United States representation at the first meeting of the General Assembly will be headed by the Secretary of States as Senior Representative or in his absence by The Honorable Edward R. Stettinius, Jr.

In so far as the Genera l Assembly will deal with matters covered by the report of the Preparatory Commission, the representatives of the United States will be expected to support the recommendations made therein unless the position of the United States on a particular recommendation is reserved, in which case the representatives will be guided by my special instructions. I am, however, authorizing the Senior Representative, after consultation with the other representatives, to agree to modifications of the Preparatory Commission's recommendations which in his opinion may be wise and necessary.

In so far as matters may arise which are not covered by the report of the Preparatory Commission ,


Mrs. Anna Eleanor Roosevelt,
342 Madison Avenue,
New York 17, New York.
