2. For correspondence relating to the admission of Japanese “picture brides” into the United States, see Foreign Relations, 1917, pp. 848876. The instructions referred to in the fifth paragraph of the letter of Aug. 20, 1917, from the Secretary of Labor (ibid., pp. 870872) were apparently never issued.
