The Prime Minister to General Freyberg
Your telegram of 2 April. I very much appreciate and thank you for the expression of your views on the proposal to retain any portion of the 2nd Division in Europe in the event of withdrawal. My own views are entirely in accordance with those you put forward. I can assure you that I am most anxious that you should communicate with me at any time on any problem affecting the Division.
I am leaving New Zealand on Saturday, 8 April, and expect to be in London towards the end of the month. I have asked Puttick to come to London and hope it will be possible for him to accompany me to Italy, probably at the beginning of June.
