Chester Bowles Letter to the President July 19, 1961

Letter from Under Secretary of State Chester Bowles to the President commenting on Press Conference., THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE WASHINGTON July 19, 1961 Dear Mr. President: I thought your statement at the press conference this morning was excellent, and I am grateful for your generous efforts to liquidate a situation which has been embarrassing and difficult for all of us. I am leaving on my trip on Monday. It will give me an opportunity to discuss and review our embassy operations in Africa and South Asia with out Chiefs of Missions and also to talk with Nehru, U Nu, Tito and others who I know will be interested in an up-to-date interpretation of our position in regard to Berlin and other critical questions. I am sure that there is no need for me to add that I am deeply gratified to have an opportunity to serve you in this critical period, and that I am anxious to do every- thing in my power to make your heavy load easier. With my warmest regards, Sincerely, [Signature] Chester Bowles The President, The White House.
