1. MUSE'S RADIO SET TO BE INSTALLED IN MILITARY ATTACHÉ'S HOUSE
2. BARCh REQUESTS MOSCOW'S PERMISSION TO MEET STANLEY
(1940)


From: LONDON
To: MOSCOW
No: 767

15th July 40



To DIRECTOR.

1. There is no possibility of setting up MUSE [MUZA][i] in the METRO [ii]. Nor is it appropriate to set her up somewhere in town. I have decided to instal [sic] the MUSIC [MUSIKA][iii] in one of the Military Attaché's rooms where she will come and work. The only ones to fear are the NEIGHBOURS' [SOSEDSKIJ][iv] people, who are in so many places here that it is hard to escape their notice. MUSE can listen out for you only on 22nd July.

2. I request permission personally to meet STANLEY [STENLI][v] since his behavior is incomprehensible and it is difficult to work with him.

No. 190

BARCh [vi]
