President Roosevelt to the Secretary of State
I think this last sentence is too strong. It might be construed as meaning that the United States “would be prepared to cooperate with the other Governments in that manner approached” and of approving “rendering collectively the assistance sought by China” and of committing ourselves, at least in part, to approval of the principle of the loan of $100,000,000 plus a credit of $100,000,000.
Can you not tone this whole sentence down? I think it would be much safer.
