46 Churchill to Evatt
Cablegram D54 LONDON, 25 February 1945, 6.03 p.m.
IMPORTANT PERSONAL SECRET
I was very pleased to read of your speech about the Crimea Conference and in particular the decisions about Poland.  You may be sure that we have not approached this subject without great heart-searching and that we sincerely believe our conclusions to offer the best guarantee for the survival and independence of the Polish state. At a time when there is much public anxiety over this matter and a good deal of illinformed criticism, your remarks have been a most welcome contribution towards putting the case in its right perspective. Every good wish.
