c 0 p I June 15, 1943 Dear Henry: As you know, discussions have been had between the Treasury staff, the Board staff, and others in our Government on the matter of the proposed Stabilization Fund Plan. Some differences of view obtain between our staffs. Meanwhile, meetings, which are still at the staff level, have been inaugurated among groups of technical representatives of the United Nations. The Board has instructed its staff that during these discussions they should if possible avoid disclosing any differences of view on the part of representatives of this Government. I am sending you this informal note merely to make sure that this instruction to our staff will not be regarded as precluding the Board from expressing its own views when it may be appropriate to do so. Sincerely yours, Ronald Ransom Honorable Henry Morgenthau, Jr., Secretary of the Treasury, Washington, D.

Morgenthau, Jr* Secretary of the Treasury* Mr* Ronald Ransom, Vice Chairman, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, "Washington, D# C.
