MacArthur is getting rid of Quezon – apparently he no longer needs the President. Have had some difficulty answering MacArthur’s message due to absence of President (Hyde Park). He approves but wants Ickes and Welles to concur.

The Generalissimo – Stilwell – A.V.G. – 10th Air Force question has been in somewhat of a mess. Have tried to straighten it out – I hope successfully.

General Marshall returned from London last evening. He looks fine. I hope that – at long last, and after months of struggle by this division – we are all definitely committed to one concept of fighting! If we can agree on major purposes and objectives, our efforts will begin to fall in line and we won’t just be thrashing around in the dark.
