The Ambassador in Japan (Grew) to the Secretary of State

42. Department’s 28, February 28, 6 p.m. Instructions in paragraph 2 were carried out this morning. The Minister said that he fully understood the considerations set forth and had had them in mind in answering questions both in the Diet and from the press. He assured me that he would continue to avoid giving specifications.

I did not touch on the point of constitutionality.
