My dear Ed:

I take pleasure in appointing you as the United States Representative on the Preparatory Commission of the United Nations established by agreement signed in San Francisco on June 26, 1945. In carrying out this responsibility you will have the personal rank of Ambassador.

With all best wishes for your success in this vitally important undertaking.

Sincerely yours,

HARRY S. TRUMAN

Note: The agreement establishing the Preparatory Commission of the United Nations is published in the Statutes at Large (59 Stat. 1411).

The White House release of the letter stated that it was not expected that Mr. Stettinius would attend the initial routine meetings of the Executive Committee of the Commission, called for August 16, but that the United States would be represented by an officer of the State Department.
