" After the final tour through new york state during the 1944 campaign, FDR's physical abilities and mental awareness both faded." "Though still involved in international affairs, Morgenthau's unofficial role as Britain's champion in Washington was now assumed by Undersecretary of State Dean Acheson. He and the British were negotiating a new British-American lend-lease agreement...the two treasuries agreed that british dollar holdings would not fall below 600 million dollars. " The Americans had grown deeply suspicious of General Chiang Kai-shek and his clique, hearing they were growing wealthy from aid shipments and that the army was reluctant to fight the Japanese...politics determined that america aid an ally, especially one that had been fighting the Japanese." "Adolf Hitler came to power 34 days before FDR did, and died 8 days after FDR died." "Henry Morgenthau's aim in government was to serve all Americans, not only Jews." "On the last night of FDR's life, he said he was pleased with McCloy, but was noncommital about whether he should be involved in ' that German matter.' "The U.S. Army thought the Chiangs, Kungs, and Soongs couldn't be trusted." "Truman: 'Neither Morgenthau nor Baruch nor any of the Jew boys will be going to Potsdam.'"
