The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Japan (Caffery)
258. Department is repeating text of its telegram no. 102 of August 30, 5 p.m.
[Here follows text of telegram printed on page 228.]
The Department wishes you to take the matter up immediately as the War Department must have a reply by November 30 because of contracts for construction work in connection with the flight.
For your discreet use you are confidentially informed that of all the Governments from which permission for flight across territory was requested, the Japanese Government is the only one which has not yet replied.
