DUBLIN, 27 November 1942

What is real position between Marshal and Darlan? Have you any reason to believe that present attitude of latter agreed to by former? Position here becoming complicated by pressure from North Africa on Laforcade to collaborate. If such collaboration took place would Vichy disown Dublin Legation? What do you think of future of Diplomatic corps at Vichy? Reply very urgent.
