Värikkäällä yksityiskohdalla saatiin siis markkinoitua äskettäin vapautettua arkistoaineistoa.There I found Winston and Stalin, and Molotov who had joined them, sitting with a heavily laden board between them; food of all kinds crowned by a sucking pig, and innumerable bottles. What Stalin made me drink seemed pretty savage: Winston, who by that time was complaining of a slight headache, seemed wisely to be confining himself to a comparatively innocuous effervescent Caucasian red wine.

If they continue their pressure, we may yield to it - to please them. In itself, it would not, I think, be a wise thing to do. A declaration of war on Finland will not advantage our cause. There is already a blockade of Finland, as complete as we can make it. The only difference that a declaration of war would make would be that we should lose the chance of the use of some 28 Finnish ships: we should have to intern Finns in this country and should lose the services of a considerable number of Finnish crews.
