While Mr Hull had been labouring in Moscow, President Roosevelt was planning a meeting with Marshal Stalin. This time it was to be a tripartite affair, and its organization proved a ticklish business. Once again, Anglo-American relations came under stress. The men in the White House were just as eager as the Secretary of State to demonstrate their independence of British influence. At the same time the atmosphere between Britain and America was clouded by many administrative difficulties, most of which were caused by quite genuine and unavoidable domestic problems in London and Washington.
