|Winston Churchill to Sir Stafford Cripps, April 9, 1942
The degree to which Churchill resented American interference in India is indicated by this internal British government telegram, sent by the Prime Minister to Sir Stafford Cripps and to the Viceroy and the commander-in-chief in India. In the telegram, Churchill criticizes remarks made by a senior United States representative, Colonel Louis A. Johnson—a future Secretary of Defense under President Truman.
