185 Curtin to Hull
Letter WASHINGTON, 5 June 1944
I refer to Mr. Winant's letter to me of 4th May , in which he enquired whether I would be disposed to hold exploratory talks on postwar international aviation in Washington on my return from London.
Under date 13th May I sent an interim reply.  I now desire to confirm that it would not be practicable for me to arrange for Australia to be represented at the suggested talks at the present time. I shall however examine the matter immediately on my arrival in Australia and will advise you further as soon as I am able.
