1. The location of Quebec made it particularly well suited as a place for the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, together with their staffs of military and civil advisers, to hold their important conferences concerning the supreme direction of the war. At the time of the first Quebec conference in 1943 the facilities that were available proved to be very satisfactory and contributed in considerable measure to the success of the conference. Accordingly, when the Canadian government received an intimation that developments in the war made a further conference necessary at the end of last summer and that Quebec was the most convenient site, the government invited the president and the prime minister to hold their meeting there. His Excellency the Governor General was graciously pleased to place his quarters in the citadel at the disposal of President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill.
