                    Dear Mr. President:                     
In our last interview you suggested that it wuld be interesting to learn   
the occasion of Badoglio's retirement.  I am enclosing a statement  from   
an offical American source who was present in Itlay throughout the   
invasion and associated with the Allied Advisory Council for Italy, which   
gives a review of the evnts leading up to the General's retirement.  I   
shall have in a few days a written statement fro an Italian source, who   
was close to the Royal Family throughout the same period, and will trasmit   
                     it in due course.                      
I am very grateful for a telegram from the Secretary announcing that at   
your instance Anabel would be directed to join me shortly and I have about   
    completed suitable quarters, having had offered the     
                      To the President                      
                        White House.
