Re your # 817. [a]
As you are aware, I have advised them concerning the first part. Insofar as the latter part of that message is concerned, on the occasion of the interview outlined in my #1147, [b] no reference was made to this matter. However, after they have studied the matter, they will doubtless present some opinions concerning it.
Furthermore, Ambassador KURUSU and myself, at their request, are scheduled to have an interview, as already announced, with Secretary of State HULL, at 8:00 P. M. today, the 22nd.
Army 25181 Trans. 11/24/41 (2)
[a] Available, being worked on.
[b] See S.I.S. #25179-80.
