File No. 861.00/2851
The Chargé in Japan ( Spencer ) to the Secretary of State
[Received October 2, 11.88 a.m.]
Referring to my cable September 23, 4 p.m.,1 and confirming conversation I had with Vice Minister for Foreign Affairs Monday, Embassy received to-day memorandum from Foreign Office stating that Japanese Government painfully shocked at information mass terrorism in Moscow, Petrograd. It shares the profound sense of horror of the American Government and will gladly join in protest as suggested against acts of sheer brutality.
