Dear Mr. Dulles:
Among the more interesting stories of espionage during WorJ 'War II is that of the spy in Turkey whose German cover name wasumerous accounts have appeared through the years all of them deficient In one respect or another.
I have maintained silence since the war and probably shall continue to do so. m strongly tempted to fill in the published accounts of the German control, Moyzisch and of the spyuspect that no other single Individual actually knows the'mo not believe that they can be gleaned from any former O. S. records.
1 believem still forbidden to make any revelations over my own name. However, many presumably unauthorized revelations have been made in the past. My own name and post was exposed some years agoook by an. member.
ad occasion to visit and confer with my former British associates and to confirm the sequence of events which occurred For part of their understanding of the affair they were dependent upon me. It was an episode which they would prefer to have buried and forgotten.
My -ivn position In Turkey was, of course, delicate andad complete freedom of association with British Intelligence and with the United States Embassy.imited intimacy of contact with Turkish Security.
I would appreciate your advice re continuing to maintain silence or straightening out the record. This latter could beublicized accountonfidential report. A.
