24 Maloney to Department of External Affairs
Cablegram S10  MOSCOW, 19 January 1944, 8.40 p.m.
Your telegram 9 , my telegram S.7 last paragraph. 
M. Molotov  was not able to receive me until this afternoon when I spoke to him in accordance with your above-mentioned telegram.
2. M. Molotov said that the attitude of his Government was clearly expressed in the communiques of January 11th  and January 17th  and he had nothing to add. I informed him that you had seen in the communique of January 11th a possibility of settlement and had asked me to advise M. Molotov accordingly. M. Molotov replied that the Soviet was not prepared to deal with the Polish Government in London or with persons who had had associations with the Fascists.
They were prepared to deal with a Government elected by the Democratic forces of the Polish people in England, America and Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
3. M. Molotov quite clearly gave me the belief that nothing short of a new Polish Government elected in the manner he stated would be acceptable to the Soviet Government for any negotiations of the Polish question.
