My telegram of 20th February No. 233. 
Following for Prime Minister from Prime Minister. 
I have received the following telegram from President of United States. Begins.
I hope you can persuade Australian Government to allow proposed temporary diversion of their leading Australian Division to Burma.
I think this of utmost importance. Tell them I am speeding additional troops as well as planes to Australia and that my estimate of the situation there is highly optimistic and by no means dark. Roosevelt. Ends.
