In a letter to President Roosevelt Churchill writes on Dec 8th, 1940.

"In the five weeks ending November3 losses reached a total of 4,290,300 tons. Our estimate of annual tonnagewhich ought to be imported to maintain our effort at full strength is 43 million tons. The tonnage entering in September was only at the rate of 37 million tons and in October of 38 million tons."
