Dear Mr. Stolz,
BRITISH MEDICAL UNIT.
I have your letter of 12th November and quite appreciate the point you make in regard to conversations which took place in Paris between yourself and Dr. Brook.
At the meeting at which Dr. Adler and Mr. Schevenels were present on the 6th November considerable time was spent in ascertaining the actual facts. After careful examination, however, I think the true state of affairs was ascertained which completely removed the original impression that you had any responsibility in suggesting that a second unit should go to Spain. It is interesting to note, however, that Dr. Brook informed the committee that his primary purpose in seeing you was to square up matters in connection with finance for the first unit and that when this was completed he stated that there was a suggestion in regard to the sending of a second unit; that he was in favour of consolidating their position in regard to the first unit, but that after a conversation with Mr. Medinaveitia he understood that a second unit would be welcomed.
The impression was clearly given by Dr. Brook that his purpose in visiting you was to discuss matters of finance connected with the first unit and that the sending of a second unit was a matter which was raised incidentally at a later stage. I should be glad if you could let me have your views on this particular point.
