Historical ContextThis letter was written by Lt. Colonel breveté Billotte on April 14, 1942 and was sent to Major Desmond Morton. In the letter, Billotte identifies several key figures that he feels will be important to the work of the Free French and who he thinks Morton may want to meet. He names the most important of these figures - MM. Pacot, Weil-Curiel, Pierre Farman, and Mangin - and provides a brief description of each of them and what it is about them that will make them useful as allies.
