New York 22, NY

DEAR MR. MALLEY: Thank you for your letter. I want to assure you that my overall position on the Algerian question has not changed, and I feel it is properly a matter of International concern, particularly when negotiations are not proceeding in good faith. It is my feeling that General De Gaulle at heart does desire to pursue a more liberal policy in Algeria than his predecessors, but I do not think that it is sufficient to say that it therefore becomes exclusively a French problem.

Let me say that I have sent Governor Harriman to West and Central Africa on a factfinding mission, and he is not concerning himself directly with the Algerian problem. Though Algeria obviously has implications throughout Africa, I can assure you that Governor Harriman is proceeding responsibly and intelligently in appraising conditions and in his discussions with African leaders.

With every good wish, I am
