The Ambassador in Japan (Morris), temporarily at Vladivostok, to the Acting Secretary of State

Matsudaira has just advised me that the Japanese Government have no objection to the proposal that the sum of one million American dollars shall be provided at once for Mr. Stevens’ use on the Siberian Railways with the understanding that this is a temporary measure without any security and that the sum will be redeemed from the general funds to be provided by the special Inter-Allied Committee.

Please advise Stevens what method he should adopt in drawing for this money as required.
