Number 453, February 25th.
Reference your 496 the three Japanese translators and one Formosan messenger employed by this office are doing translation that can not be done adequately by American personnel. Although we known they report to police when hostile affairs of office so organized that they can report nothing of any consequence. Miss Ishigami an American citizen handles routine reports and correspondence only with Miss McMahon writing all confidential matters.
Recommend that present setup remain unchanged.
