His conditions of work there are very bad, but the agent could be convinced to stay there. If this does not succeed, maybe he could be used for other work. h. Dutch Embassy: The agent is a trustworthy man, but he has limited intelligence opportunities and can give reports only on bureaucratic issues. i. Independent French Agency: Apparently a very good agent, who has the useful post of secretary-typist.

Swedish Mission: The agent is over sixty years of age, has worked for the Swedes for more than thirty years and is very loyal towards them. During the war, he worked well for us for purely patriotic motives, but it will be di≈cult to convince him to continue betraying his masters during peacetime unless some specific case arises and we will be able to assure him that, from the national point of view, there are truly serious reasons for him to do so. d. French Embassy: An especially good agent, who, however, will find it di≈cult to stay there for various reasons.
