that would cover all the situations that bother us. You may even have at your disposal a young officer full of encyclopedic information who could take one glance at what we are doing and tell us whether or not we are wrong.
I haven't seen you since my trip to England and Africa, and let me thank you again for making the journey possible and for all favors past. I have tried to report truthfully on what I saw and I hope you will find the play a good job.

Dear General Surles -- 1
I am of course changing or deleting the passages in Storm Operation to which you refer. In regard to the Australian nurse I am consulting with Sherwood. Whatever his opinion, it seems wise to eliminate all reference to her origin and to change her uniform sufficiently to make identification impossible. My whole intention is, as you know, to further the friendship and cooperation of the Allies and I shall welcome any further suggestion along those lines. None of these changes will injure the play in the slightest, and I am honestly grateful to your bureau for your friendly assistance.
Sincerely Maxwell Anderson
