On April 21, 1945, Churchill wrote to Eisenhower:
(1) I hope that your plans for STUTTGART have developed in the way you wished.
(2) I am sure Parliament would like you to receive another atrocity inspection team, if this is not too great a burden upon you, as soon as the present one return.
Two days later, Eisenhower responded:
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR 2554 OF 21 APRIL. PERSONAL FOR THE PRIME MINISTER FROM EISENHOWER. WE CAN MANAGE TO HANDLE ONE MORE ATROCITY INSPECTION TEAM FROM PARLIAMENT OR OTHER GROUP OF YOUR CHOICE. WILL THEY PLEASE LET ME KNOW EARLIEST DATE SO THAT I CAN ENSURE THAT THE BEST ARRANGEMENTS FOR THEIR VISIT ARE MADE? I UNDERSTAND THE FIRST TEAM FELT THAT WE HUSTLED THEM TOO MUCH AT THE CAMP. I REGRET THIS.
