Cablegram 723 WASHINGTON, 5 June 1946, 8.20 p.m.
For the Prime Minister alone.
1. There have been several further alterations of draft agreement on Lend Lease and I am arranging that you should receive revised and completed document  together with comments by Moore on the alterations. All of these alterations he regards as being satisfactory to Australia. He also proposes to sign an accompanying letter regarding Army supplies in the Pipe Line stated to be paid for since United States terminated Lend Lease.
2. My general feeling is that you made a very satisfactory bargain.  However there has been much bustling in the last twenty four hours and I thought it best that you should have complete picture before you. Moore, who is about to leave the Commonwealth Public Service, is in a somewhat nervous condition and I am naturally anxious that you yourself should have a final and up to date perusal of documents before we become finally bound.
3. I propose to object to any inclusion in the United States draft press statement to aviation negotiations which have nothing whatever to do with Lend Lease settlements. 
4. When you approve document there will be very little delay in formal signature of agreement.
