File No. 763.72/5785

The Chargé in Japan ( Wheeler ) to the Secretary of State


Viscount Motono unofficially asks me to let you know that if it is convenient and agreeable for Root and his party to visit Japan on the way back to the United States it would be a gratification to both the people and the Government of Japan. Personally he expressed a very keen hope that this could be arranged. Mr. Root’s party are expected to arrive Vladivostok 17th instant.
