[Telegram]

For John F. Stevens from Daniel Willard:

Your cable 17th. Think you have decided wisely that Emerson and party should remain in Japan until situation clears. Arrangements being made for ample credit in Japan through American Ambassador at Tokyo as you request. There seems good reason to believe situation in Russia will improve and that Emerson in short time will be given opportunity to render service originally intended. Keep us fully advised.
