[Telegram]

3055. For Crosby [from Treasury]:

Your No. 33 for Treasury. Regarding matter of tonnage and whether it can be allocated for transport of troops you will please state that that can be taken up in future when we are faced with practical execution of plan. Please urge concurrence in principle on part of both Governments and state that political situation in China will be much improved by an evidence on part of Allies to allow her cooperation even if practical difficulties actually prevent it.
