Regarding pouch service, it appears that all our mail has hitherto gone in special pouches to the War Department. Have now arranged that all mail from the Mission shall henceforth be sent in special State Department pouches to be taken by overseas couriers leaving generally every three days. Please inform me if situation does not show early improvement.
