Due to the straining of international relations, we have destroyed in readiness for emergency out of the codes kept at this office the Yokohama Special Bank code, the TU code, MATU Chinese Character List (it was, of course, reported in my #806 (?)) on the 29th.

 

As a result we find it impossible to decipher your message of the 29th (Yokohama Special Bank request telegram - - - number of words 18.)

 

Will you please wire the same in the Foreign Office code.
