IMPORTANT SECRET AND PERSONAL
Thank you for your message in your telegram No.357.  I am very much alive to the difficulties which the Dutch-Indonesian situation has caused for Australia and I am therefore the more grateful to you and Dr. Evatt for your ready acceptance of our views. I feel sure that you can fully rely on Lord Killearn continuing to maintain closest touch with Mr. Ballard and I will certainly convey to him your offer of assistance so that he may take advantage of it should the occasion arise.
