191 Evatt to Curtin
Cablegram E81 WASHINGTON, 13 May 1943, 1.23 a.m.
MOST IMMEDIATE MOST SECRET PERSONAL
I had a long conversation with the Prime Minister this evening at the White House. First of all he was greatly impressed with the general approach to the Russian-Polish situation contained in your telegram  which contains a very different approach to the problem from that in Bruce's original wire.  Churchill appeared to be desirous that we should offer to watch Polish interests with a view to carrying out the general objectives you mentioned. He said that this could only be done with the full consent of himself and the President. I am inclined to think this will be forthcoming but he will communicate again.
I also talked with him in a preliminary way regarding plans for expanding the R.A.A.F. As I told you this can hardly be achieved without the full support of both Churchill and Roosevelt.  I am hopeful of securing Churchill's support at any rate for a substantial part of the programme. They will obviously take some time to work out the position.
