General Freyberg to the Prime Minister
I could see Mr. Jones here at once if it is so desired. Operations have now reached a semi-static state very different from the Mareth operations in progress when Mr. Jones was in the Middle East last month. I could make adequate arrangements here for his safety, and suggest that he comes via Algiers to see Generals Eisenhower and Alexander. You will realise that it may be difficult to see all the troops here. His presence in the forward area would be most welcome.
