The Ambassador in Japan (Morris) to the Secretary of State
[Received January 9—4 a.m.]
6. The War Minister has just advised the Embassy that this morning he received a telegram from General Oi, Japanese commander at Vladivostok, stating that General Graves had been instructed by the consul to withdraw all American troops from Siberia. In the absence of any information from the Department, I assume that this repetition of the message is untrue, but would appreciate definite advices.
