Your telegram of 9 April.
We are of course most anxious that everything possible be done to accelerate or increase the assistance to be afforded to us by the United States, and as a step in this direction we welcome the decision to advance the despatch of about 6000 of the May division to early May.1 This first flight will be located in Papakura Camp south of Auckland, and the remainder will on arrival be located in the same area.
Appropriate arrangements will be made for the reception of the advance party.
